    Can you please advise if it is possible to add Custom Dropdown menu's to the editor toolbar(s). I appreciate that you can add a Custom Links tool etc but what I would like to do is add a new dropdown called "Placeholders" and in this i want to be able to display a field name (such as Full Name) and if this item is selected I want to insert [[FullName]] into the content at the point the cursor it.

    The snippets option is the closest i can find, but I cannot see how to change the mnu name from Snippets (or Custom Links) to something more end user friendly.

    You help/advise would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Hi Greg,

    You can localize the insert Custom Link dropdown by using the Localization property of RadEditor:

            RadEditor1.Localization.Tools.InsertCustomLink = "Placeholders";

    However, it is not possible currently to change the localization string of the Insert Snippet dropdown. This is in our ToDo list for the upcoming hotfixes of RadEditor "Prometheus".

    For your convenience I have made and attached an example with a custom dropdown. You can use the solution to implement your dropdown scenario.
