2) The toolbars are all blown apart
The dropdown arrows for some of the controls are underneath the actual image.
The previous version did not have this issue.
3) How do I get rid of the bunch of wasted space underneath the preview button. It's empty space that is better served for the actual editor window.
The previous version did not have this space/issue.
The only real way to describe the issues is if you let me email you a jpg of what I'm looking at.
This is for internal company intranet app on IE 6.0.29

1) by default the editor grabs the page background color. Therefore you need to create a second css file that describes the style you want the editor to show and then use the cssFiles property to point the editor at the newly created file
2) The drop down arrows in the wrong place can happen as the new toolsbars are infact wider than the RadControls version, this means you need to leave more room for them and therefore they also now wrap. If you can, make your editor a little wider to see if this resolves this issue.
3) You will have to create your own custom ToolsFile.xml....and play with the module section: The NodeInspector, HTMLInspector, and XHTMLInspectors can be set to "false" and they will then be hidden.
<module name="RadEditorStatistics" dockingZone="Bottom" enabled="true" visible="true"/>
<module name="RadEditorDomInspector" dockingZone="Module" enabled="true" visible="true" />
<module name="RadEditorNodeInspector" dockingZone="Module" enabled="true" visible="true" dockable="false" />
<module name="RadEditorHtmlInspector" dockingZone="Module" enabled="true" visible="false" />
<module name="RadEditorXhtmlValidator" dockingZone="Module" enabled="true" visible="true" dockable="true" />
Hope this helps....
1) Respectfully request you make background color a simple property
Last 2 versions this has been an issue. Now I have to hack out your CSS to fix the background color (again).
2) Please click on the link below to look at a screenshot - it clearly shows what is wrong with the toolbars - they are not wrapping or anything like that, the overlay images are sitting underneath instead of on top of their respective images.

3) The custom ToolsFile.xml you suggested did the trick here.
So by the way, how do I remove the "resize radeditor" icon that is on the far right of the preview icon?
1) The background color thing is VERY annoying and I wish there was a way to tell the editor to IGNORE the page css and just set a background color....you will see the background color is a property....but I have never had it actually do anything.
2) That is wacky.....I might suggest replacing your radcontrols directory....or checking to see you do not have a css style on the page setting image properties (like margins, padding, or margins)
3) I am glad....but I do not know how to solve the resize issue....hopefully Telerik may anser this one....?
I have tried to implement the secondary .css file but what is the controls name for the text area?
Thanks for the response. Yes I created a seperate .css file called editor.css and put it in the same folder and then in the Editor tag I set the ContentAreaCssFile="editor.css" but my control is still rendering with the background of the page which makes it completely useless.
Am I not setting this up correctly? I really wish Telerik would have at least included a sample of how to do this, it seems like a very common thing that people would want to do.
I still can't belive they ditched the "Save" and "Cancel" buttons. They provide a snippet on how to include them but they don't include the full tools.xml just a small portion so you have to completely rebuild it.
I appreciate your help,
In fact there is a sample called Setting Content Area Defaults which deals with this functionality quite extensively, explaining how to use both CssFiles property as well as the ContentAreaCssFile property. Please note the use of the !important css attribute when setting a background-color.
The sample can be found in the editor online demos:

Just my comments
Please, make sure that you are using the default VS2005 page DOCTYPE
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
as well as that you have not some global style for UL and LI elements (not for IMG) which can destroy the toolbar appearance.
If you are unable to solve the problem, please open a support ticket and send a sample working project (along with your stylesheet and all needed files) that demonstrates the problem. Once we are able to reproduce the problem on our end, we will do our best to provide a solution soon.

- Use a master page
- Editor skin is Outlook
I tried to reproduce the problem following the provided instructions, but to no avail. You can see my test in the attached video. Am I missing something?
In addition, I have also attached a sample project which you can test. Is it possible to modify it and send me back (using the attachment functionality of the support ticketing system) so that I can reproduce the problem on my end. Please, also include a screenshot of the problem.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
to the top of the master page (above the DOCTYPE) and it will happen for you.
The <?xml?> tag before the DOCTYPE of the page is called xml prolog and has been widely used in the near past by IE6 developers to trigger quirks mode without removing the doctype, or declaring non-standards compliance DTDs. This bug was later fixed in IE7, and that is why you experience skin problems under IE6.
We are sorry, but we do not provide controls that work in quirks or HTML 4 modes.
My advice is to try pure xhtml mode, and you will be fascinated by the tons of new possibilities for development.
