    Hi there,

    I have a single instance of RadEditor on a page which I am using for text entry of multiple fields by moving in the DOM.
    All works fine except when I have EnableTrackChanges set to false I notice a significant delay between text entry and text appearance on the screen. I don't think I can have EnableTrackChanges flag on for my requirement. Can you please assist me to avoid that delay without setting EnableTrackChanges flag?

    Thank you.

    Hi Deepadevi,

    I am unable to reproduce the problem on my end. Could you please provide a sample configuration of the used setup so that I could be sure that I am setting the editor with the correct settings.

    Nevertheless, I am somehow confused why the EnableTrackChanges property is set to false. By default the editor's track changes feature is disabled and you can check if removing the property is resolving the issue. If it does not, please provide a simple project, which I could run and investigate locally.

    Hi there,

    Changing the ContentAreaMode setting from div to iframe improved the delay.
    But I have the following issues with the following settings

    EnableComments="true" EnableTrackChanges="false" ExternalDialogsPath="../Telerik/" ToolbarMode="Default" ToolsFile="../Telerik/tools.xml"
        CancelImageURL="~/../images/close_popup_small.gif"
        EditModes="Design" ContentAreaMode="iFrame" Skin="Metro"
        StripFormattingOptions = EditorStripFormattingOptions.NoneSupressCleanMessage

    Defects:

    1)      Clicking Numbered List does not work for the selected text listed below which is entered manually.

     

    “Test

    Add

    Data

    To be included”

     

    2)      Clicking Bullet List with the selected listed above text puts the bullet just next to the first row.

    Should it be like this?

    3)      Clicking New Paragraph, while the above text is selected, leads to replacing the selected text to “a”.

    4)      When text is selected and Font is changed, the highlight from the selected text is possible to cancel by clicking in any area of unselected text.

    5)      Error message “Invalid argument” is displayed when Cut icon is clicked on Text Area for the selected text with set Bullet, Numbered List and just text.

    6)      Sometimes Numbered List cannot be performed at all for newly entered text, just after playing with Bullet, it’s possible to create Numbered list.

    7)      Sometimes error message “Object required” is opened when the selected text is moved in Text Area or any Paste is clicked.

    Hello Deepadevi,

    The first reported problems are related to a Breaking-change in the behavior of Block commands. More information about this matter and an approach to roll back the behavior is provided in this help article:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-inline-and-block-commands-behavior-change.html

    The other reported issues, cannot be reproduced on my end. Please try using our online demo to see if you can reproduce them and get back to me with the exact steps, so that I could investigate the issues. If you can verify that they are not reproducible, I can suggest trying to resolve the issue by upgrading to the latest available version of RadControls (2013.3.1114).

    Hi there,

    I am having issues in attaching the zip file.(I tried to attach the project)

    As per your suggestion I tried to download the latest editor and use it. 
     I can reproduce the Issue # 2 even on your demo site.
     I am still having following  issues if I set "EnableComments=true" for the editor,

    Steps to reproduce:

    Just set the "EnableComments=true" with all other required attributes(id, runat)  in a RadEditor instance

    1) Clicking Numbered List does not work for the selected text listed below which is entered manually.

    “Test
    Add
    Data
    To be included”

    2) Clicking Bullet List with the selected listed above text puts the bullet just next to the first row.
    Should it be like this?
    3) Clicking New Paragraph, while the above text is selected, leads to replacing the selected text to “a”.
    4) Error message “Invalid argument” is displayed when Cut icon is clicked on Text Area for the selected text with set Bullet, Numbered List and just text.
    6) Numbered List cannot be performed at all for newly entered text, just after playing with Bullet, it’s possible to create Numbered list.

    Please assist.

    Thanks,
    Deepa

    Hello Deepadevi,

    As I mentioned, the first two issues (the ones with the lists) are related to a breaking change in the logic of the block commands, which is explained in this help article:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-inline-and-block-commands-behavior-change.html

    Also in this help article, you can find a possible approach to roll-back to the old behavior and resolve the issue.

    As for the project, please make sure that the zip archive is less than 30mb. If the Telerik dll files are included, you could delete them in order to shrink the size of the project.
