    A problem that we cannot explain or work around.  Often when our end users right click on a table to edit some table properties, text formatting is completely changed, like a whole new style is applied, even when no actual changes were made in the properties dialogue, just by launching it and clicking OK.  We found that the table was being changed, and a lot of TH were appearing.  We then narrowed it down to the Heading columns field in the properties dialogue was defaulting to 3 and was being applied to the table when OK was clicked.  We did not program any accessible features, and do not want this.  Attached is a print screen of the Heading Columns field with a mysterious 3 in it, that we think is then being applied to the table.

    How can we stop this, or programmatically access this field to keep it at 0.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I tried to reproduce the issue, but to no avail. You can try if the problem is reproducible with this live example and get back to me with the exact steps leading to the problem. You can also review this screencast and let me know if I am missing something important.

    Greetings we thought this was resolved but is till an issue.  Here is what we know, the telerik online demos do not exhibit the behavior we are seeing, but we are, and are unable to find out why.  We have narrowed the issue down to the Table Properties -> Accessibility -> Heading columns as seen above.  This field is being auto-populated with a number and in turn seems to be changing <TD> tags into <TH> tags in the table. If we delete the "Heading columns" number (every single time) - it is fine, but this field is always being auto populated.So, what can be doing this, can a css variable make its way into that field.  We are creating simple tables with NO css assigned, could an inherited css populate this "heading columns".  We are not using any th formatting in our code, but clearly it's coming from somewhere as your demos do not suffer from this. We cannot see anything obvious in the skin css or otherwise.Any and ALL ideas are welcome.

    Hello Peter,

    Global CSS files can affect the content of the editor. If you desire to remove these CSS inheritance you can simple add an empty CssFile item into the CssFiles collection.

    Example:
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1">
        <CssFiles>
            <telerik:EditorCssFile />
        </CssFiles>
    </telerik:RadEditor>

    We discovered where we think this value is coming from, it has something to do with an embedded table with a header row. 

    Please see this screen recording, the issue was reproduced in your live example as I was requested to do:

    Please advise, thank you.

    Hi Peter,

    I reproduced the described behavior. Indeed the table accessibility tab gets the header elements of nested tables.

    I logged this as a bug report and you can follow this feedback portal item for updates on the task. Also, I provided a possible resolution with a customized  external dialog replacement.

    I am updating your Telerik points for reporting this issue.
