Odd behavior when highlighting text in RadEditor

Steps to reproduce the text highlighting issue:

  1. Go to https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx
  2. Delete the content and write a single line
  3. Use the mouse to highlight a portion of text starting at the end (right side) of the text and dragging toward the beginning (left side).
  4. Stop about halfway to the beginning of the text.
  5. Now, while the text is still highlighted, press shift and left arrow to continue selecting. This will work for some time until the highlight gets near the beginning, then, the highlight will start moving from the right side.

Hi Jean-Pierre,

Thank you for reporting this problem!

Until the issue gets fixed, you can use the temporary solution below:

                var $T = Telerik.Web.UI;
                var $Editor = $T.Editor;

                $Editor.DefaultToolAdapter.prototype._registerEditorHandlers = function () {
                    var editor = this.get_editor();
            <telerik:RadEditor ID="Radeditor1" runat="server">
                <Content>some very long long long long long sentence</Content>
