    Why on earth would the editor add <p> tags every time the user hits the enter key.  Seems insane to me.  The user has to now know about the shift key trick.  Is there a setting I'm missing that allows the Kendo editor to work more like the RadEditor I'm using to write this post?   I think the RadEditor is made by you guys also... am I correct?  Why wouldn't it work similarly?

    Hello Mike,

    The editor mimics the behavior of MS Word, which inserts paragraphs on enter and line breaks on shift+enter. If you need to reverse this behavior, refer to the following forum post.

    Is there a way of having an editor user documentation?. Here the clients are always asking me how to do this or how to do that and my boss is asking me to create something like a "user documentation"...

    Hello Damir,

    There is no such user documentation that could be provided to your end users. You can, however, post an item in Kendo UserVoice to propose such resource to be created. 

    On a side note, an end-user manual is available for Editor UI for ASP.NET AJAX, if you consider creating one on your own (for Kendo Editor), you could possibly reuse some content from there. You can download it from here (http://www.telerik.com/documents/RadEditorAjaxEndUserManual.pdf).

    Also, in RadEditor there is a help dialog (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/built-in-dialogs/defaultcs.aspx). You can create such a dialog in Kendo Editor by creating a custom tool to open a dialog. Note that tools are different in the two editors. Therefore, the content should be different in order prevent possible confusion among the end users.
