            One of our large customers is currently using MS office word to document information. As they plan to migrate to MOSS 2007, the customers expect to have some functionality available in MS Word. One such requirement is that of hierarchical numbering e.g.

           Demo text

    1.1.    Demo text

    1.1.1. Demo text

    2.       Demo text

    3.       Demo text

    3.1.    Demo text

    3.2.    Demo text

    Rich textbox editor available OOB with MOSS 2007 doesn’t support hierarchical numbering or bullets. I evaluated telerik editor but was unable to achieve this requirement. Can you please tell me if telerik plans to implement this functionality? or if it is already implemented, then how to use it.

    Hi Swaminathan,

    RadEditor for MOSS is based on RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX editor control. This control produces, depending on the enabled content filters, HTML or XHTML code. At this point you can not create multilevel lists in HTML by using ordered list element <ol>. So unfortunately the answer of your question is: No, RadEditor does not support the desired functionality.

    Hi Swaminathan,

    With the recent version of RadEditor, pasting and creating nesting list is possible. To create such a nesting is possible via the Indent and Outdent tools.

    However, achieving the hierarchical number ordering is not possible as a built-in option for lists in HTML at all. To decorate a list with such bullets, you need an additional CSS customization (you can read further about that here—http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10405945/html-ordered-list-1-1-1-2-nested-counters-and-scope-not-working) that cannot be applied automatically on pasting such a list from MS Word.

    However, you can add an option for the users to apply such a decoration via class name and using format sets tool—http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/functionality/toolbars/dropdowns/format-sets.
