I'm evaluating the RichTextEditor for WinForms as a replacement for another third-party control.  Frankly it would save me a lot of work if we could use your control, so I'm very enthusiastic about it, but I've discovered a problem.  When a line contains multiple font styles, I'm seeing a vertical alignment issue. Likely no one would ever do this in the real world, but it's part of our regression tests and I know it's going to be a barrier selling this to my boss.

I've attached a couple images.  My test app is little more than the editor and an associated ribbon bar, and I used the ribbon bar to make the formatting changes as shown.  The default font in Verdana, and the misaligned text is Courier New.  I saved the text as a docx and loaded it in Word, and you can see in the other image that the alignment problem is not present.

Any suggestions?

Hello, Steven,   

I was able to reproduce the problem and have logged it in our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

I have also updated your Telerik points.

Currently, due to the specificity of the text rendering mechanism in RadRichTextEditor, I am unable to suggest a suitable solution. We will do our best to investigate in details what can be improved in the rendering mechanism of RadRichTextEditor and provide a fix if it is possible.

I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know. 

Regards,
Dess
