    I'm using RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI to handle a richtext box.

    By default the control creates a drop down list with all the available fonts of the system. I would like to restrict my user and provide him/her with specific ones.

    I wold like that the fonts are not show in the drop down and not load them in the document, for instance if the user paste some text with other font the editor will not recognize the font and paste it with one of the defaults.

    How do I do that?

    Hi Antonio,

    You can inherit the RichTextEditorRibbonBar which will give you access to the drop-down list. Then you can hide the undesired items: 

    class CustomRichTextEditorRibbonBar : RichTextEditorRibbonBar
        public CustomRichTextEditorRibbonBar()
            foreach (var item in dropDownListFont.FontListView.Items)
                if (item.Value.ToString().StartsWith("Arial"))
                   item.Visible = false;

    I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.
