    I'm using a RadEditor control with a custom toolbar. In Chrome and Firefox it displays fine, but in IE 10 the toolbar takes up an extra blank line. I tried using the default toolbar, but that displays a blank line as well. I've also tried switching the browser mode in IE to 7, 8, and 9, but get the same result.
    Any idea what might be causing this?

    Just an update. This seems to be an issue only with the latest version of IE 10. A co-worker has an older version of IE 10 and the toolbar looks fine (just like in Firefox).
    Here's one of the control definitions:
        ID="reEnvironment" runat="server"
        EditModes="Design" ContentAreaMode="Div" NewLineMode="P"
        ToolsFile="~/App_Data/RadEditor/Tools.xml" ToolbarMode="Default"
        AutoResizeHeight="true" Height="100px" Width="100%"
        Content='<%# Bind("Environment") %>'
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <module name="RadEditorHtmlInspector" enabled="false" visible="false" dockingzone="bottom" />
    <module name="RadEditorNodeInspector" enabled="false" visible="false" dockingzone="bottom" />
    <module name="RadEditorDomInspector" enabled="false" visible="false" dockingzone="bottom" />
    <module name="RadEditorStatistics" enabled="false" visible="false" dockingzone="bottom" />
    <tool name="Bold" shortcut="CTRL+B"/>
    <tool name="Italic" shortcut="CTRL+I"/>
    <tool name="Underline" shortcut="CTRL+U"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="ForeColor"/>
    <tool name="BackColor"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="JustifyLeft"/>
    <tool name="JustifyCenter"/>
    <tool name="JustifyRight"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="Indent"/>
    <tool name="Outdent"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="InsertOrderedList"/>
    <tool name="InsertUnorderedList"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="InsertLink" shortcut="CTRL+K"/>
    <tool name="InsertSymbol"/>
    <tools name="DropdownToolbar">
    <tool name="FontName"/>
    <tool name="RealFontSize" text="Size"/>
    <tools enabled="true">
    <tool name="Undo" shortcut="CTRL+Z"/>
    <tool name="Redo" shortcut="CTRL+Y"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="Cut" shortcut="CTRL+X"/>
    <tool name="Copy" shortcut="CTRL+C"/>
    <tool name="Paste" shortcut="CTRL+V"/>
    <tool name="PastePlainText"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="Print" shortcut="CTRL+P"/>
    <tool name="FindAndReplace" shortcut="CTRL+F"/>
    <tool name="SelectAll" shortcut="CTRL+A"/>
    <tool separator="true"/>
    <tool name="ToggleScreenMode" shortcut="F11"/>

    I was using an older version of the control in the project, so I downloaded the latest (Q3 2013). That did not resolve the issue...

    Hi Tim,

    I tried to reproduce the problem under IE10, but to no avail. The described issue could be reproduced only under IE7 compatibility mode and it is due to CSS limitations under this browser. You can examine this screencast in which is shown the test process and the mentioned limitation.

    I suggest you checking if the IE10 browser is running in compatibility mode and IE7 standards.

    I verified that with compatibility view off, the issue still appears. It must be something else I'm doing on the page. I'll look into it some more.
    Thanks for the reply...
