    Seems like whn you copy something in the iPad Safari browser and try to paste it into the RadEditor it does not work? Even if you click the ToolBar Paste button it does not work. Is there a work around?

    Set the ContentAreaMode property to "Div", touch the content area for a few seconds and choose the Paste option to paste the copied content?

    I've got the same problem and even if i set ContentAreaMode property to "Div" is not working. On the other hand, SOME of my radEditors are working with "Iframe", but others are not.
    This is an example:

    1. <telerik:RadEditor ID="txtNotes" runat="server" EditModes="Design" Width="290px"
                                    Height="150px" ToolsFile="res/xml/PendingToolbarTools.xml" ContentAreaMode="Iframe"
                                    NewLineMode="Div" EnableTrackChanges="false" />

    This one above, is working.. but this :
    2. <telerik:RadEditor ID="txtNotes" runat="server" EditModes="Design" Width="500" Height="250"
                        ToolsFile="res/xml/PendingToolbarTools.xml" EnableTextareaMode="True" EnableTrackChanges="false"
                        ContentAreaMode="Iframe" /> 
    Is not working no matter if i set "Iframe" or "Div" to COntentAreaMode. 
    I am touching display for few seconds and nothing is appear, sometimes appears "Select,Select All"(radEditor is empty) and if i press Select then "Paste" is appearing.

    Hello Christian,

    Note that the mentioned context menu on holding the tap on the content area is a functionality provided by the device's browser and it is not somehow related to RadEditor logic.

    Due to that we are unable to control it or correct it via the RadEditor control.

    On a side note, when it comes to touch devices it is always recommended to use the Div ContentAreaMode, due to native browser limitation regarding editable iframe elements.
