  1. Add placeholder for Editor widget

    Editor does not support placeholder. It would be nice, to have this feature.

      The feature has been approved and we’ll try to implement it for R3 2016.

    • Images resizable inside editor Widget

      The images inside the editor Widget are resizable only when using Firefox. It would be great if the resize option for images is also available for other "big" browsers like Chrome, Safari and IE. I'm aware of the thread that says that only Firefox supports image resizing by default. This could be implemented independent of supporting it by browsers. Many other (opensource) editors like tinymce support that feature by default, that could be implement by Javascript instead of waiting for other browsers supporting it.

      • Add Format Painter to Kendo UI Editor

        Format Painter is a tool on the ASP.NET Ajax version of the editor - I would really like to see this ported to the Kendo UI and MVC versions of the same control.

              • Can you please add this option or remove the "inherited" value? I don't understand how this is useful in anyway. Why would the user want to

                Editor selected default font name and font size display as "inherited" in toolbar tool dropdown.

                Can you please add this option or remove the "inherited" value? I don't understand how this is useful in anyway. Why would the user want to see "inherited" and not the actual value. That makes no sense and you guys added something this and wasted time on a feature that adds no value to our end users, none.

                • Add image crop and edit tools similar to the asp.Net ajax editor

                  We build a project on Kendo, and incorrectly assumed we would see similar levels of tools in the ditor as per the ASP.Net ajax implementation. We were surprised to find the image editor was not available. I guess I dont really understand why you couldnt call the existing functionality from the server side using Ajax as a fast way to beef up the functionality for Kendo?

                  • Inline Editor floating Toolbar should be positioned relative to Editor

                    Currently the floating toolbar for an inline Editor (a contentEditable div as opposed to a textarea) is positioned relative to the document body, not the Editor itself. If for example your Editor is in a div with its own overflow-y: scroll while the body has overflow: hidden, as is the default in a SharePoint 2010 page, then as you scroll this div, your editor will scroll in the div, but the toolbar remains fixed, when it should scroll along with the editor. We need to be able to append the toolbar to an arbitrary container so that it can be…

                    • imagebrowser events and/or snippets

                      Create events for the ImageBrowser for both standard widget and MVC Wrappers.

                      Many times I want to style my images that are being inserted by wrapping them in some custom HTML DIV's and SPAN's. This would allow them to include code for prettyPhoto for example, contain classes that can float the image right or left, allow for margin's, etc.

                      Including the capability of adding snippets that would wrap around the image when Insert is clicked would add a lot of value.

                      I guess templates could be used, but the capability would need to be there.

                      Anything to allow me to…

                      • Bootstrap container tool for editor

                        I would like the editor to have more support for Bootstrap editing. Adding and controlling col-* div containers using the editor. Most modern editors have such control but none excels. Adding support for glyph icons and responisve tables and commonly used class for them, such as "table-striped".

                          • Allow customization of generated HTML

                            The Editor is currently very reliant on inline styles. Inline styles can be used for XSS attacks, and per the OWASP guidelines they should be sanitized: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/XSS_(Cross_Site_Scripting)_Prevention_Cheat_Sheet#RULE_.234_-_CSS_Escape_And_Strictly_Validate_Before_Inserting_Untrusted_Data_into_HTML_Style_Property_Values

                            This is not easy to do "after the fact", as it needs to be two way.

                            Suggest that the editor can be customized similar to TinyMCE (https://www.tinymce.com/docs/configure/content-formatting/#exampleofusageoftheformatsoption) to allow classes rather than inline styles.

                              In the editor, offer tools to collaborate on shaping text/content. This would include Word-like functionality to add notes/comments and use track changes with the ability to accept/reject notes, comments, and redlines.

                              • please, make Kendo Editor much smarter.

                                ASP.NET AJAX RadEditor is much user friendly (i.e. image resize with mouse, styling some simple properties like margin...etc.). We use Kendo UI and HTML5 in our new projects, but in our custom CMS we had to integrate RadEditor, because it is very smart and user friendly and gives a great helping hand and many functionalities to our users who has no html and css experiences.

                                Kendo Editor is still not a tool for a CMS, it is good only for writing some sentences to news or for some very-very simple editing task.

                                  Thanks for the feedback, Roland.

                                  Can you elaborate a bit more on what existing features in our AJAX Editor (currently missing in the Kendo UI editor widget) you find essential for inclusion? This will help us better understand your request and prioritize these features for future development based on the votes this feedback item receives.

                                  I would like to see a chat control with different layouts like skype, whats-app etc.

                                  • Hyperlink upgrade for tel and mailto

                                    For the editor, I would like to suggest an upgrade to "Insert hyperlink". It would be great if you would split out the prefix from the address and have a selector that allows the user to choose website, email, or phone.

                                    Selector: Website/Email/Phone
                                    Address:sales@kendoui.com
                                    Text: Kendo UI
                                    Tooltip: Click Here
                                    Open Link in new window: No

                                    Results:
                                    <a href="http://www.kendoui.com">Kendo UI</a>
                                    <a href="mailto:sales@kendoui.com">Kendo UI</a>
                                    <a href="tel:8883652779">Kendo UI</a>

                                    • Implement Inline comment in Kendo Editor

                                      We are using Kendo UI editor in our project and one of our requirement was to implement the inline comment feature.

                                      I have implemented a extension to Kendo editor using JS inbuild functions and CSS to create a Inline comments for any text in the editor.

                                      User can select any text in the kendo editor and add review comments against it. Other user can see the comments, Reply to the comments or add, delete, edit their own comments.

                                      User can clear all the comments on click of one button.

                                      • Editor NewLineMode to Div

                                        Please add support NewLineMode property like in RadEditor.

                                        I need this behavior:
                                        The last available option of the NewLineMode property is Div which will insert a div (<div> tag) on every carriage return (pressing Enter). In order to insert a <br /> tag in this mode press Shift+Enter .

                                        More info:

                                        • Code Formatter for Editor

                                          It would be nice to have a code-formatter like the one in the MVC Extensions, or even an easy way to plug-in an open source code formatter into the Editor.
