In connection with your first question
- by design the Find and Replace
functionality is not supposed to be used in the HTML mode of RadEditor
. It is additionally implemented in order users to find or/and replace strings in the code (excluding special symbols).
Actually, there is a way to avoid the special-symbol-escaping feature. You just have to modify the FindAndReplace
dialog, changing the _replace function with the desired settings. For your convenience I have prepared a demo of this dialog, where the special symbols won't be replaced with their equivalents when working in HTML mode
. You could see the detailed demo in here: Customize Built-in Dialogs
Please, keep in mind that this is not a tested functionality so you could experience some unexpected errors.
About your second question
: I tried to reproduce the problem with the whole text replacement but to no avail (see this video
). Could you please provide more details on the specific scenario?
- Which versions of RadControls and .NET Framework are used in your application?
- Under which browser and its version the problem occurs?
- Could you please provide a sample fully runnable project reproducing the problem so we can examine and debug it locally?
