    I am evaluating Sitefinity 3.5 now and when I came to adding Generic Content I found that I can not add a table unless i go into teh HTML editor. Am I missing something? I want to be able to insert a table in the word editor and then add different things in the table cells. Will look much better by structuring the layout with a table. I think I am using the standard trial version, but not sure. Anyone...? Thanks.

    Hi Andrei,

    To make the Insert Table icon appear in the Editor toolbar, you need to modify the EditorToolsFile.xml file, located at Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates. Add the following line:

     <tool name="InsertTable" enabled="true" /> 

    You can see all tools that can be added in EditorToolsFileAll.xml

    I hope this helps.

    Fantastic, it is there now. Thank you very much. I wonder, if one was to buy a standard edition Sitefinity, would it come with all the tools enabled or not?

    Thanks again for your help.

    Hello Andrei,

    You can configure which Tools to have in the editor without worrying about the license. We are not enabling the tools by default even if you have a license - not because they are forbidden to use - we only want to make the layout as clean as possible. The only thing that the licensing does, is removing the trial message from your web site, once it is uploaded to the web.

    Kind regards,

    Where do I put this capacity in v.3.6?

    I've tried to insert "<tool name="InsertTable" enabled="true" />" in "Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\EditorToolsFile.xml" but it does not work.

    Hi Godthaab,

    For instance you could enable "InsertTable" tool under the main toolbar as the example below demonstrates

    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/EditorToolsFile.xml

      <tools name="MainToolbar" dockable="false"
        <tool name="InsertTable" />

    Thanks for your reply, although it is a bit rude for a beginner :-(.
    To other fools, I can refer to an excellent webinar on RadEditor. Link: http://www.sitefinity.com/support/webinars.aspx
    And "http://www.sitefinitywatch.com/notes/09-01-14/Making_the_Most_of_RadEditor_in_Sitefinity.aspx" it is just what a beginner needs!

    Hi can,

    You need to map the HtmlField control and set its EditorToolsFile. Check this thread.
