When playing around with the RadRichTextBox for WPF, the following has been noticed:

1) Type in some text using Calibri font: 

2)  Insert symbols in Wingdings font by going to Insert and add Symbol: 

3) Close the 'Insert Symbol' popup, and start typing from the Keyboard. Notice that only Wingdings symbols are being typed up: 

Question: Is this the intended behaviour in Telerik? In Microsoft Word 2013. when you insert a symbol, it does not change the font of the text. In this case, Microsoft Word will let the user type out characters in Calibri font from their keyboard after inserting Wingdings symbols through the Insert Symbols icon present in MS Word. Also, in MS 2013, the font present in the Home page would still be Calibri, it will not change to Wingdings as it does in this example.

Note: The RadRichTextBox being used is from the demo which can be downloaded here: https://demos.telerik.com/wpf/

Hello Rania,

This is a known behavior in RadRichTextBox and we have it reported on our feedback portal: RichTextBox: After inserting symbol through the InsertSymbol dialog, the font family in the document is changed to font family of the inserted symbol. The task is already in development and it should be available with the next release. You can also use the workaround described in the public item.

Hope this information is helpful.
