When selecting/highlighting all text then bold / change font  etc. the entire text is quite rightly wraped with start and end tags.
What i want to do is wrap each line with the text change.
Reason being i am treating each carriage return or new line as an entry. If user selects the lot i need each line tagged not the lot.
Can i stop users from selecting the whole text can select one line only.

Hi Mike,

The content area of RadEditor is an editable IFRAME element which uses the Rich Text Editing engine of the browser and its commands to apply formatting to the selected content.

I made a test by selecting the whole content with Ctrl+A and applying bold formatting and saw that the browser applied the strong tags to every line individually, e.g.

Original Content
<p>line1</p>
<p>line2</p>
<p>line3</p>


Produced Content after the bold command execution:
<p><strong>line1</strong></p>
<p><strong>line2</strong></p>
<p><strong>line3</strong></p>

Please, note that this is a browser behavior and we cannot override it, because this will cause different unwanted side effects.


Kind regards,

Hello Mike,

The browser applies the bold formatting per paragraph and for that reason my recommendation is to set the NewLineBr property of RadEditor to false. Therefore the editor will insert a paragraph tag when the enter key is pressed and each selected new line will be wrapped in a strong tag when the bold command is executed.

There is not workaround when there are <br/> tags in the content, because the browser handles the Bold command.
