    I'm using ToolsFile to customize the RadEditor.Tools :


      <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" Runat="server" ToolbarMode="RibbonBar" ToolsFile="~/Editor/DefaultToolsFile.xml">


      <tools name="Clipboard" tab="Home">
        <tool name="Cut" text="cut" size="medium"/>

    But how to set the group header (space char included) for tools group in ToolsFile :

      <tools name="Clipboard" text="Home here" tab="Home">
        <tool name="Cut" text="cut" size="medium"/>

    text and header property not works, change the value of 'name' property ?

    *group header sample - http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/controls/radribbonview/features/ribbon-controls/images/RibbonView_Group_Overview.png

    Best regards

    Hello Chris,

    You can use the name attribute of the tools node: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/functionality/toolbars/using-toolsfile.xml#tools-collectiontoolsandheadetools. I'll update the article to explain this more clearly.

    Here is a basic example:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <tools name="Page Setup" tab="Page Layout">
            <tool name="PageProperties" size="large" />
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" ToolsFile="XMLFile.xml" ToolbarMode="RibbonBar"></telerik:RadEditor>

    and the expected result from this is attached.

    You can see this in action in the following demo as well: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/ms-word-like-experience/defaultcs.aspx.
