We are using the RTF Editor and we are experiencing issues with a lack of flexibility/control of where we can place bullets in our text. Is there a fix for this? Currently we are placing the cursor in the spot where we would like the bullet to appear, selecting the bullet option, and then the bullet appears elsewhere. The editor seems to expect that the bullet be created first before any text is entered (and therefore we seem to need to add the bullet first, then write the text, which causes difficulty as we have a lot of pre-existing text that needs to be re-organized). We need a way to enter text first, or have pre-existing text, and then place the bullets in front of the lines of text. It would be very helpful to be able to place bullets easily in any places they are appropriate.

Do you experience the reported behavior in the live demo: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/? Can you record the reproduction steps and send the video or screenshots how to reproduce it?

I cannot attach the video as it is an .avi file and/or too large. Is there any other way to send this to you?
When I click on the link you've sent, I don't see where to view the reported behaviour in the demo.
You can record the video with the free Jing screen capture tool, upload it to their server and provide a URL to it.
Another approach is to open a support ticket which will allow you to attach zip files up to 20 MB.
You can also provide screenshots demonstrating the steps to recreate the problem along with sample content for test.

Step 1 (screenshot - bulletissues1): You see the existing text.
Step 2 (screenshot - bulletissues2): Place cursor in front of line of text where you want a bullet (third line).
Step 3 (screenshot - bulletissues3): Press “bullets” button to apply bullet to third line of text.
Result (screenshot - bulletissues4): Instead of the 3rd line of text becoming bulleted as desired, all the text becomes bulleted.
RadEditor experience is closer to that of desktop rich text editors (like MS Word) which create lists out of block elements only. Thus, you should set the NewLineMode property to P to get the desired behavior.
NewLineMode="P" is the default setting of the newer versions of RadEditor (check this demo) and each new line is represented by a paragraph. Thus when you hit InsertOrderedList/InsertUnorderedList buttons the list will be created on the same line.
