    I am using RadEditor for SharePoint in SP 2010 SP1. I have looked at video on how to add the radeditor for sharepoint webpart to a page.

    I am a bit confused and need some help.

    1. I want to set Telerik properties of the webpart. for example I want to have access to all of the toolbars for rad editor and not just the default ones. How do I do that?

    2. It looks like the only way a user can edit the content is for them to click on the webpart dropdown menu and select edit webpart. This makes the user editing process unecessarily complex. I.e check out page, edit page, edit webpart etc. In vanilla SP when a user edits a page they can select the sp editor webpart and can immediately start editing without haveing to select an edit web part option.

    Am I missing something or is this the way it works?

    3. Is it possible to add the radeditor webpart to a SP page layout? If I try inserting a web part within SPD  the sharepoint radeditor is not listed and I cannot see the misc section where it is located.

    Hi Peter,

    Straight to the points:
    1) You can configure RadEditor through its ConfigFile.xml / ListConfigFile.xml files as demonstrated in the following help article: Set Properties Via Config File.

    To change the toolbar mode from Default to ShowOnFocus, PageTop or Floating, update the value of the following tag:

    <property name="ToolbarMode">Default</property>

    2) I agree with you but this is the way to enable the web part by clicking on its dropdown menu and selecting edit webpart.

    3) This feature is still not implemented. Right now the Telerik RadEditor for SharePoint 2010 web part is available in the Miscellaneous category of SharePoint Site only. This feature is already logged in our ToDo list and we will implement it for one of the next versions of RadEditor for SharePoint 2010.

    Kind regards,
