    Hi,

    we are developing a MOSS System and were using the Lite RadEditor for MOSS so far. We've done some customizations like changing the color palette, limit the font types and add some new buttons and drop downs (using different tools-files).

    Will this customized tools-files be working with the full featured RadEditor? Or do we need to redo the whole customization?

    And: will we need to deactivate the lite editor for all lists and pages before retracting it and deploying the full version? Or does this work the same way as upgrading to a newer lite version?

    Finally: is there any chance to parallel install the lite and full RadEditor and the same MOSS for testing?

    Hello Robert,

    Before you upgrade to the full version, you need to save the changes you have made to the editor configuration (i.e. tools files, config files, etc.). After that you can retract and delete the Lite editor solution.

    After you install and deploy the full featured version, you can copy your configuration files back in the editor folder. Finally, you will need to re-activate (deactivate and then activate) the RadEditor features on one site and recycle the SharePoint application. You only need to do this for one site - the editor will become active on all other sites after you restart the web application.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have both the Lite and Full versions installed at the same time as they use the same solution and features IDs.

    Thanks a lot for that fast reply. Guess we'll need to do the test switch somewhen on the weekend :)
