OnChange event not fired for some "formatting" changes

We are using the Kendo Editor control and need to take actions based on the onChange event firing.  We have found that some formatting changes, such as changing the column width in a table doesn't trigger the onChange event.

Is there a work around for this issue.  It can be reproduced using your editor event demo here

Hello Craig,

The change event does not fire in the described scenario, because after the Editor is blurred dragging the columns resize handles does not put the focus in the widget. The handles themselves are outside of the content, whereas for the change event to fire the Editor must be focused and then blurred. So for instance in the following scenario the change event will fire on resizing the columns: create a table and click within one of the cells, then resize a column, then click outside the Editor to blur it -> the change event fires; repeat - click within a cell, resize a column, blur -> the event fires.

At present we do not have a plausible workaround that would make the change event fire on columns resize.

I converted this thread to Feature Request and made it visible in the Feedback Portal. This will allow the community to vote for it. If this functionality is desired by the community we will consider implementing it in a future release.
