I want to find the built in, default style for the document.  I want to edit it based on that.

Where can I find them?

Hello Edward,

 If you want to change any of the following properties (FontFamily, FontSize, FontStyle or FontWeight) you can do it directly in xaml or in code behind by setting the respective property and setting  DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings to true as described in this article.

If you want to change some of the properties of the paragraph or the table, you can do it only in code behind by accessing the DefaultStyleSettings property of RadRichTextBox as shown bellow:
this.editor.DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings = true;
this.editor.DefaultStyleSettings.ParagraphProperties.Background = Colors.Yellow;
this.editor.DefaultStyleSettings.ParagraphProperties.TextAlignment = RadTextAlignment.Center;
In this way when you change the document of the RadRichTextBox those properties will be synchronized and will be applied on the new document.

There is another way to change the default style of a specific document by using the Style property of the document like this:
this.editor.Document.Style.SpanProperties.ForeColor = Colors.Brown;
this.editor.Document.Style.ParagraphProperties.Background = Colors.Green;
Notice that those changes are with higher priority and will override the default style of RadRichTextBox. Also those changes will not be applied if another document is shown. 

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

I mean, what is the default style that the RichTextEditor use if I do not specify any style at all?

But then, since we are talking about this.... I cannot find this.editor.DefaultStyleSettings.ParagraphProperties.  I see DefaultStyleSettings but then nothing inside.

Hello Edward,

 
 DefaultStyleSettings is of type StyleDefinition, which is located in Telerik.Windows.Documents.Model.Styles namespace. Please check if you are using this namespace, it should reveal the ParagraphProperties of DefaultStyleSettings. We introduced these properties in 2011 Q2 version, please make sure you are using this or a more recent version.

About the default style of our RadRichTextBox in my last post I described how the default style works. If you continued to experience difficulties you can give use more detailed information about what you are trying to achieve so we can help you further.
