    I'm using RadEditorMoss v 5.8.15 and I'm not finding a MediaManager.gif in the ToolImages folder.  Is this a sign that I installed the light version?  I have the Ajax pack so I should have access to the full thing right?

    Hi,

    The built-in MOSS Rich Text Editor does not offer a MediaManager tool and for this reason we do not provide a MOSSMediaManager tool which will require an external icon. RadEditor has its own MediaManager dialog, the icon of which is embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI.dll assembly.

    Ok, so the RadEditor in the RadEditorMoss.wsp should contain a reference to the Media manager dialogue though right?  I ask because I've Installed it and activated it for a blog site template on our testing server.  It shows up fine on the multi-line rich text field we have in the posts list.  Also, the image manager works perfectly; however, the media manager button doesn't show.  So I've added the following line to the tools file on both servers in the farm, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    <tool name="MediaManager" />

    What did I miss?

    Hi David,

    If you indeed, use RadEditor for MOSS 5.815, but not the lite version which is 4.x.x, you can see how to enable the MediaManager tool in the following help articles:
    Inserting Flash and Media files in RadEditor
    Media Manager
    and
    Introduction to Toolbars.

    So, to explain how we're working with the license, the procurement officer is the one listed as the license manager/owner/whatever.  The gentleman who sent the support ticket is the supervisor of the developers, and he's listed as the developer on the license, but I'm the only one actually working with it at the moment.  He sent the support request at my behest.

    Also, are you saying, that if I create an automation to send object and embed tags into a rich text field via the object model, sharepoint will strip them?

    Hello David,

    Thank you for the provided information about the license usage.

    Also, are you saying, that if I create an automation to send object and embed tags into a rich text field via the object model, sharepoint will strip them?

    SharePoint will strip the object and embed tags in SharePoint forms (Lists, Wikis, Blogs, etc.) scenario and you will experience this problem in the out-of-the box SharePoint rich text editor too.

    I guess deciding on my approach is more of a sharepoint issue than a Telerik one at this point.  Thanks for the help.
