When we open a report with Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe we can edit a HTML Text Box in the Design view (like visible in the image here: Overview Design view) and it's also possible to format the text directly by using the In-Place Editor (like here: Editor).

But we miss this WYSIWYG Editor in Telerik.ReportDesigner.Net.exe (v. 18.0.24.130).
We can only edit the text with the HTML tags and it's no longer possible to adjust the style of a single word by selecting the formatting options like bold, italic, font color, etc.

Telerik.ReportDesigner.Net.exe:
Option "Design view" is missing and even if we edit the text directly (not in the Edit Expression Dialog), we always see the HTML tags.



Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe:


Are we missing something or is this not supported anymore by the newest version of the ReportDesigner.Net?

Hi Linda,

Your observations are valid.

Due to some compatibility issues, the HtmlTextBox editor from the .NET Framework version of the Standalone Report Designer cannot be carried over to the newer .NET version of the designer (see Differences between the .NET and .NET Framework designers' functionality).

We do plan to add this missing functionality to the .NET Standalone Report Designer but, at this point, only the .NET Framework Standalone Report Designer, the Web Report Designer, and the Visual Studio Report Designer support the HtmlTextBox editor.

In fact, we added the HTML editor to the Web Report Designer with the version you are using (18.0.24.130). You can try it out in our public online demo.

I hope this answers your question. 

Best Regards,
Momchil
