Our clients have been complaining their texts formerly edited in ASP.NET Classic RadEditor are missing all the Tabs and Line Breaks when they open it for the first time using the up to date ASP.NET Ajax RadEditor. We know the old control generates plain text while the new control consume xHTML. Short of wriitng our own parser to check through the database(s), is there any mode/setting we can use on the ASP.NET Ajax RadEditor to accept these old texts and render them with all the tabs and line breaks?

P.S. I only need to do this once since any subsequent savings of the texts will be in the proper xHTML formats.

Hi Hubert,

I am not aware of this problem and you are the first to report it. The latest version 7.36 of RadEditor Classic use the same content filters as RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX.

Is it possible that you use an older version of the classic editor, where the Indent HTML filter works with . dot symbols instead of spaces? Could you specify which version of RadEditor Classic you use?

Could you please open a support ticket and send some content produced by the classic editor and a screenshots demonstrating how it is displayed in the classic and in the Ajax editors?


Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hi Rumen,

The old RadEditor was version 7.2.0.0 hence before your fixes.

I shall gather the old text and screen shots from our product support department and file the ticket later. The issue was discovered when we were converting clients from older versions of our software to the latest version.

Hi Hubert Lo,

Version 7.2 uses the old content filters architecture and it is not so enhanced as the filters of version 7.3.x and AJAX editor.

Once we receive the requested information (content with screenshots) we will see what can be done for your scenario.

Thank you for your assistance.

Best regards,
