    I have been using v 3.2 for a few months and have been frustrated by the editor window.  It is so small that I have to scroll up and down in it and in the window it comes up in.  Is there a way to resize the window? 

    Also, in the Editor the text hardly ever looks the same as on the page . . . any ideas about that one?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Denny Meredith-Orr,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You can maximize the window of the editor that pops up to the max size of the browsing area on your browser (see attached image).

    As for how the formatted text looks in the editor window and how it displays on the page you should check your theme styles. You might have styles in your theme that will override the CSS from the editor. I suggest that you inspect both the styles for your editor, and your themes to see where the discrepancies are coming from.

    If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us.

    Thank you, Rado,

    I do not have the same screen as in your screen shot.  I do not see a way for me to attach a file ,so here is a link to what my editor screen is like . . . http://www.reliantlive.com/Images/sitefinityscreen.jpg

    Hello Denny Meredith-Orr,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    It completely flew of my mind that in Sitefinity 3.2 the RadWindow control does not have those buttons. There is another approach to increasing the window size. However  this will change it for all control designers, not only the Generic Content control. You can edit the CSS for this particular RadWindow. Open the file ~/Sitefinity/Admin/Themes/Default/AjaxControlsSkins/Sitefinity/Window.css, and add the highlighted rules:
    /* RADWINDOW PROMETHEUS "Sitefinity" SKIN */ 
    div.RadWindow { 
        background-color#C8D2D4
        border1px solid #557076
        width:840px !important; 
        height:680px !important; 

    I hope that this is what you are looking for. If you need more help, please feel free to contact us.
