I am using the MVC Editor in several pages, but I can not find out how to set alignment, size, padding etc. on images that I insert. Mybe I am forgetting something in Filebrowser settings. Here's my code:
@( Html.Telerik().EditorFor(x => x.Article.Content)
                        .Name("rtxtEditor")
                        .Localizable("nb-NO")
                        .Tools(tools =>
                            tools.Clear()
                            .Bold()
                            .Italic()
                            .Underline()
                            .Separator()
                            .FontName()
                            .FontSize()
                            .Separator()
                            .JustifyLeft()
                            .JustifyCenter()
                            .JustifyRight()
                            .JustifyFull()
                            .Separator()
                            .InsertUnorderedList()
                            .InsertOrderedList()
                            .Separator()
                            .Outdent()
                            .Indent()
                            .Separator()
                            .CreateLink()
                            .Unlink()
                            .Separator()
                            .InsertImage())
                        .FileBrowser(settings => settings
                        .Browse("Browse", "ImageBrowser")
                        .Upload("Upload", "ImageBrowser")
                        .CreateDirectory("CreateDirectory", "ImageBrowser")))

Hello Roy,

I am afraid such functionality is not supported currently. You can try using a custom tool and the Editor's client API in order to apply the desired attributes after inserting the image inside the content area.

That's far too complicated for such simple functionality. What's the reason with inserting a photo without being able to format it the way you want where you want. To me the editor is useless the way it is, so I'd better find one that I can use that meets my customer's criteria.

Hello Roy,

When we designed the Editor tools, we wanted to make them simple, without unnecessary customization options. Generally, margins can be set via external stylesheets, while using width or height (either inline or in external stylesheets) will make the images look ugly (blurred or pixelated), so this is rarely recommended.

What we can offer you is to add one field in the image dialog - "CSS class", which you can use to assign all styles that you could possibly need to that CSS class.

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately just a CSS class is not good enough in the current project. My customer wants to be able to insert several pictures with different alignments and different paddings. Being able to attach documents and link to docs stored in a virtual directory is also a requirement, without knowing the path to the directory. Here we are talking about end users who is used to MS Word and nothing else.
