    I have been attempting to incorporate the rich text editor into my application and have come across some strange behavior surrounding local storage.

    I believe I can repeat this behavior on the demo site (although I'm not 100% sure because I can't actually see the errors)

    1. Load the demo site and open up one of the rich text editor demos.
    2. After it's loaded, clear your local storage.
    3. Navigate away from the rich text by, for example, clicking the "Telerik - Deliver more than expected" link in the top left corner.
    4. Notice that the demo splash page page has a link to the rich text box demo on the right hand side.  if you click that now... the demo site crashes.

    In our application we can replicate this behavior by loading up the rich text controls, clearing isolated storage and then attempting to come back into the screen again...  We get a host of exceptions that look like they are MEF related...

    Hi Rob,

    RadRichTextBox uses IsolatedStorage to store the dictionaries needed for spellchecking. When you delete the isolated storage file, RadRichTextBox loses its dictionaries which in turn leads to a crash.

    We will fix this for our next internal build and the 2013 Q1 official release.

    Great.  Thanks.  I'll wait for the next build then.
