    Ivan,

    Thanks for your reply. But as I mentioned in one of my previous replies "... it looses the ability to auto-resize when the margin is dragged wider..." It does invoke it as wider, but now when I drag the margin of the Editor,
    the editing area stays the same. That means that I can only have one size now and that's it.

    I still can't get why does this Theme which was the Telerik University theme does not work. All I changed was a couple of images and that's about it.

    I need the ability to auto resize, because when I have a table to edit and some cells are completely empty, they come up as collapsed. They do not redraw themselves properly until I don't drag the margin so that they can redraw themselves again. 

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hi Andrei,

    I sent a reply to one of your support tickets about the auto resize - resizeToContent function.  This function is called from the base and it is always set to the base value, which means that you cannot easily use
    setWidth and setHeight function of the designerBase - they get overridden.

    Yeah I know Ivan, I just thought Katia knew a different way. I guess she was not aware of the ticket.

    I am thinking to re-download one of the Themes and start again from scratch on them. Why would it bring it like that I cannot think of anything. I will change one thing at a time and so hopefully, I can get a theme working fine.

    Can you suggest a theme that is crrently working ok that I can start with?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hi Andrei,

    Rad Editor does not resize when you resize Content block window by dragging its margins. This is not implemented. However, we have added Toggle full screen button which will maximize the whole window like shown in the screenshot.

    The theme I suggest is Default backend theme.

    Come one Sitefinity! A CMS system with such a bad editor integration I do not understand! Telerik who develop this editor should be ashamed! Peter

    Katia,

    Thank you very much for your reply. I appreciate the Toggle button. It is a very useful feature. I shall give it a go, although the issue is the initial view (at load time).

    You are suggesting the Basic theme, but can I change it as easily and as extensively as I can..., lets say the University one? I want to change quite a few things in it, and I was under the impression that the Basic theme was embedded.
     
    Thank you very much for all your help.

    Hi Andrei,

    The Default backend theme is embedded but I have attached it and you can try using it. We will consider the option to make it easier to add CSS which will override some specific rules of backend theme.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Katia,

    I am using the Default Theme now and the Content block control comes up as normal,
    but it seems that the white area where the editing happens does not resize when I drag
    the margin any more (see attached image). Is that down to the theme or the actual
    version of Sitefinity that I am using? I want the Content block to come up in its proper size
    as well as the resizing functionality. Is that not possible?

    Many thanks again,
    Andrei

    Hi Andrei,

    The resize of the editor when the window is being resized has nothing to do with the theme. Actually this functionality is not implemented. We have plans to improve Content block widget user experience. Our idea is that the size of the Content block widget window should be percentage of the browser window. We will consider your case as well.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Kind regards,
    Katia

    Katia,

    The resize of the editor when the window is being resized has nothing to do with the theme.
    When I use the old theme I had, the white area is resizing as I drag one of the sides (see attached).
    When I use your new (Default) theme it does not (as per my previous image). This points to the theme
    if using one theme, teh white area resizes and using teh other theme it does not.

    Thanks,
    Andrei
