When you use a MentionContext on a RadRichTextBox and you are on the last line of the text box, it does not pop open a Mention Context Menu when using the Context Character.  You have to hit a return to expand the box, and then move up a line, and then use the mention Character. 

Am I missing something or was this done by design? 

Is there a way to trick it into thinking it isn't the last line? 

Can it be fixed to possibly open upward instead of downward?  Since my example is only one line, an upward solution wouldn't work for me either.

Hello Ryan,

I was able to reproduce the observed issue. I have logged it on our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe to status changes, and add your comment to it here: RichTextBox: The Mentions popup is not shown when the cursor is in the last line and the line is at the down edge of the control. I have updated your Telerik points.

I am afraid I cannot suggest a workaround at the moment.

I want to apologize for the inconvenience this missing functionality is causing you.

Regards,
