    Copy and Paste with support for screen shots from clipboard
    Image sizing and formatting
    URL Links
    Spell check
    HTML view and output
    Persist into to filesystem as HTML and or database BLOB field

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for your feedback. We really liked it because of the concrete features that you mentioned. I have updated your Telerik points for that.

    We are currently brainstorming on such an editor and all the features that you mentioned will be considered besides the last one (saving to a data base) as we do not consider it appropriate for a reusable component. Also I cannot currently give you a time-frame for the development of such a component as we are still at the brainstorming stage and we are gathering feedback from our customers. In this regard, I would like to ask the other members of our community to post as well the features that they need as this will play important role in shaping the future implementation.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team

    Hello John Seifert,

    Although no real progress is made regarding this control, we are researching the option to reuse our RichTextBox for Silverlight. We will have more information on this in 2 to 3 months.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Hi Christian,

    I know that this is being progressed but as yet it is not implemented. Have a look at my blog post regarding the Rich Text Editor. Telerik are keen to obtain feedback on features that are required in such an editor.
    Hope that helps

    Hello Sanu, 

    Thank you for writing.  

    Currently, Telerik UI for WinForms suite offers RadRichTextEditor which is a control that is able to display and edit rich-text content including formatted text arranged in pages, paragraphs, spans (runs), tables, etc. Please have a look at our Demo application >> RichTextEditor >> First look example. The Demo application can be found in the installation folder of the suite which is usually located at the following path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for WinForms R2 2017\Examples\QuickStart\Bin.
    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.

    Progress Telerik
    Try our brand new, jQuery-free Angular 2 components built from ground-up which deliver the business app essential building blocks - a grid component, data visualization (charts) and form elements.
