    Hello everyone,

      Did a bit of searching on these forums and haven't found the solution to my problem -- this being said, my apologies if this is a repost!

      I have managed to get Rad Editor Lite to run on WSS 3, and have activated the CSS Styles icon on in the Lists web part (ApplyClass, that is). I seem to be having some serious interaction issues, though! For instance, I try to select some text to apply a CSS class to it, click on the styles dropdown, try to select a style and -- nothing happens. I do notice that the selected text is no longer selected.

      Also, I've noticed that there are times when I apply a CSS style (after a frustratingly long amount of times trying to select-and-apply styles the control finally registers my request) and nothing happens but the selected text remains selected. It seems that in this particular case the style has been applied but has been overwritten by other styles applied to the text.

      Note that in my case the styles stick, whether in Edit mode or not. The problem is that, during editing, the user is tearing her hair out trying to get the styles applied correctly. She could of course set a font size, color, etc -- but that puts the onus on her to make sure everything stays consistent. Not ideal.

      Does anyone know anything about this problem? Definitely happens on both IE and Firefox.

    Hi Rick El-Darwish,

    What I suggest you to do is try the ASP.NET AJAX version of the control. You can get a fully functional trial version. The latest one is RadEditor for MOSS 5.4.8. In order to upgrade to it follow the instructions in the following online help article: Upgrade Instructions from version 4.x to version 5.x .

    Also you can find helpful information in the following two help articles:
