    We are using Sitefinity 3.7 SP4 and have almost got it up and running the way we desire, however, we have come up against a minor issue but a significant issue with the RadEditor when a user add's generic content;

    1) How do you hyperlink an image to a document? (Without using the HTML tab - this would be far too advanced for our users!!)

    2) When highlighting text in the RadEditor with the intention of linking this to a document, the highlighted text is not maintained in the "What should the link say" textbox? - It always says the name of the filename?  Is there any way of maintaining the highlighted text in this box in a similar way as to when you add a hyperlink to a page.

    Hi Karl,

    1. You can right click on the image and choose "Image Map Editor" . The Image Map Editor has a property "Target" which you can use.

    2. Out of the box this is not supported. The could be done with a custom code where you  get the selected HTML and send it to the selector. You should modify insertLink() of Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\Libraries\Dialogs\DocumentEditorDialog.ascx where we set the document text.
