    Can anyone reproduce this? The editing tools are all out of whack when I set inline mode and make the width 100%. I'm using it inside a Layout

                        <telerik:LayoutColumn Span="12" SpanXs="12" SpanSm="12">
                            <div style="background-color: #EEEEEE; margin-top: 10px;">
       <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1"  runat="server" EditType="Inline" Width="100%" Enabled="True">
                <h2 class="titleText">RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX</h2>
                <p style="text-align: justify;">
                    <span style="color: #4f6128; font-size: 19px;"><strong>RadEditor</strong></span><span style="color: #4f6128;">
                    </span>is not simply an HTML
                    <a href="#HTMLDescription">
                    </a> Editor. It is what Microsoft chose to use in <strong>MSDN</strong>, <strong>CodePlex</strong>, <strong>TechNet</strong>, <strong>MCMS</strong> and even as an alternative to the default editor in
                    <a href="">SharePoint</a>.

    Hello Ken,

    Indeed, when the editor's size is set in percent, the toolbar does not have a proper size and I am logging this for fixing. I have also updated your Telerik points for your report.

    In the meantime, I can suggest two possible workarounds:

    • simply set the ToolsWidth property of the editor to the desired dimensions:
      <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" Width="100%" EditType="Inline"  ToolsWidth="400px"></telerik:RadEditor>
    • Add the following JavaScript that will calculate the current editor dimensions when the toolbar shows up:
      function OnClientLoad(sender, args) {
          var toolPopup = sender.get_toolAdapter().get_window();
          toolPopup.__editor = sender;
      function resizeToolWindow(sender, args) {
          if (sender.__editor) {
              var editorDims = $telerik.getBounds(sender.__editor.get_element());
              var currDims = sender.getWindowBounds();
              sender.moveTo(editorDims.x, editorDims.y - currDims.height - 10);
      <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" Width="100%" EditType="Inline" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad"></telerik:RadEditor>

    You can track this matter's progress here:  I would also encourage you to leave your comment on the desired behavior as well.
