    I am trying to apply my own custom CSS on one of our SharePoint page but I can't seem to make it work. It's for the ContentArea editor when editing a text area. Based on my research, I've read that I have to declare the CSS in the ConfigFile.xml. Also, I've put the actual CSS file under this path:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\Resources


    The ConfigFile.xml looks something like this:

    <!--<property name="ContentAreaMode">Div</property>-->
    <property name="ContentAreaCssFile">
    <property name="ToolbarMode">ShowOnFocus</property>
    <property name="ToolsWidth">640px</property>  
    <property name="ImagesPaths">
    <property name="MaxImageSize">10485760</property>


    After doing the above, the CSS seems to be not working (i.e. font size, margin, padding, etc.) I haven't noticed any difference.

    Am I missing something? Can you please point me to the right direction?


    Hoping to hear from you soon.
