After having read dozens of articles in this forum on similar topics, I realized that it just was not there: I'm desparately seeking an answer on how to change the default (Times New Roman, size 3, black) font in the RadEditor for MOSS, when it is deployed in a WSSv3-only scenario.

I am using the latest version of RadEditor MOSS (version 5.1).
I am using (and testing) the editor in a WSS List.

I find it very hard to find helpful information on WSS only deployments - could you please set up a separate hive for that?

Hi Plopper,

You can easily achieve the desired behavior by creating the /wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.1.0.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/CssEditor.css file and in it set the styles to be applied to the editor's content e.g.
body
{
    color: black !important;
    font-family: TimesNewRoman !important; 
    font-size: 10pt !important;
}

For more information on this please review the following help article:

Hi George,

Thank you for your quick reply. I did not realize that the css file had to be called 'CssEditor.css'. (I tried to configure some other css file through the CssFiles propoerty of the ListConfigFile.xml file, but apparently that does not work that way).

Your solution worked for setting the default font - thanx!

Hello George,

I don't seem to be able to change the default font for RadEditorMOSS 5.2.2.0 even if I follow the instructions you gave to Plopper by creating the CssEditor.css to \wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.2.2.0__1f131a624888eeed\Resources and defining the wanted font-family with the !important directive. I'm using FieldEditor's RadHtmlField.

I've also tried to define font names to ToolsFile.xml (http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/fonts.html) and even tried to modify RadEditor.js with Telerik.EnableEmbeddedSkins swtiched to false with no success.

Am I missing something here.

Regards, Juha
