Hello Support team,

We are facing some issues while adding list items in RadEditor, if the default size is changed it changes the size of the text in the list item but it does not change the size of the numbers representing each list item.
can you please check the attached screenshot?

Please look into it and let us know if you need any other information.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Sanjay,

This is the default browser behavior of the document.execCommand("FontSize") command to update only the ordered lists text without the shape (glyphs). This behavior can be observed in the following video I recorded for you  http://youtu.be/JfJdmNq-OKg?hd=1 as well as in the competitors' HTML editors too.

The demo demonstrated in the video can be found at http://dojo.telerik.com/@nlazarov/IFIPAR.  

If you want to fine-tune the Fonts or RealFontSizes commands of RadEditor so that the font-size is applied to the list itself you can use the JS based solution provided in the following forum thread on the matter:

Rad Editor - Numbered Bullet list is not changing Size


<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientCommandExecuting(editor, args) {
        //The command name
        var commandName = args.get_commandName();
        if (commandName == "RealFontSize" || commandName == "FontSize") {
            var selElem = editor.getSelectedElement(); //get the selected element
            var parentElem = selElem.parentNode;
            if (selElem.tagName == "LI" || selElem.tagName == "UL" || selElem.tagName == "OL") {
                if ($telerik.isIE7 || $telerik.isIE8) {
                    selElem.parentNode.style.fontSize = args.get_value();
                else selElem.style.fontSize = args.get_value();
<telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" OnClientCommandExecuting="OnClientCommandExecuting" runat="server">
