I have a RadRichTextEditor. When it contains multiple lines a vertical scroll bar is shown. When I keep writing and press the enter key to insert a carriage return, it starts a new paragraph but the cursor disappears. 

When I press return at the bottom of this control I want the cursor to be kept in sight. See the screenshots I have attached. You can see that after the return you can only see the very top of the cursor, the rest is hidden. You have to actually manually scroll down to get it into view.

When you start typing, this cursor comes into view, but I want it to be in view even if you just press return. Is there a way to get it to do this?

This seems to be the default behavior of this control, as I have created a new application to show this, which doesn't contain any of the formatting which my actual application does.

RadRichTextEditor renders the text with a little bigger characters spacing than RadRichTextBox and MS Word.

In Word, for paragraphs in a list:

1. The bullet/number uses the value of the first line indent

2.1 The text on the first line is aligned according to the left indent when the left indent is smaller than the first line indent (the usual case).

2.2 If the first line indent is smaller than the left indent, the first line aligns with the rest of the text, using the value of the left indent property.

2.3 When there are tab stops, they are used for the position of the text. In RadRichTextBox, the text in the first line always aligns according to the FirstLine indent.

Also, tab stops can be used to position the text after the bullet/number.

When deleting all content (e.g. Select All [CTRL+A] + Delete [Del]) in the document, it would be convenient for the user to preserve all formatting (local span formatting + local paragraph formatting + style) applied on the last paragraph. 

This will ensure that the user will continue edit the document with last current font, font family, etc.

If this operation is applied on an empty document, though, the styling of the single paragraph should be reset to the defaults for the document.

When trying to import a document containing bookmark and BookmarkRangeEnd is after the last paragraph, a StackOverflowException is thrown in IntervalNode while trying to rebuild the document cache. (RadDocumentChildrenCache.RebuildTree()).

The same could be observed if the bookmark end is last in the header/footer, between table cells in the RadDocument body, or when all paragraphs after the bookmark range end are hidden (with vanish property).

Workaround: Detect the problematic annotations and remove them:
foreach (var rangeStart in document.EnumerateChildrenOfType<AnnotationRangeStart>())
    if (rangeStart.End == null || rangeStart.End.Parent == null || rangeStart.End.Parent.Parent == null)
        //MessageBox.Show("This indicates a problem.");

Note: Until 2017 R2 SP1 release StackOverflowException is thrown, after this release an ArgumentException should be thrown.

Please refer to the attached gif file.

Let's take for instance demo application with its default document, with text "RadRichTextEditor for WinForms" at the beginning in font Calibri of size 28. Suppose the user wants to add A, then empty line, then C in single line, followed by the rest of the document, and to have these three new lines in Times New Roman in size 10.

If there is no empty line, but letter B in middle line, then user can set caret to document start, set the font and size, and type A<Return>B<Return>C<Return>. And it would look fine (and even then, if we set caret just after B and press Return the new paragraph will have spacing after set to 7.5 for no apparent reason).

If we want an empty line instead of B in the line, then there is no simple way to do it. Typing A<Return><Return>C<Return> would produce a huge gap between A and C (we still first set the caret, and font and size). One way to accomplish what we want is to select all new text, set font size to something other than 10, and then back to 10 (which is also weird to have to do).

Right-click on header/footer usually does nothing. If we double-click them we enter their edit mode. After we close header and footer and right-click on them we get context menu as if we are still in edit mode. If we scroll out of view of header/footer, and then back in, right-click will again do nothing.

Also, separate but similar bug, in demo document's footer there is a three-column table. It is possible to resize with the mouse all the columns widths, and even the row height. Mouse will change shape, as if in edit mode. It is not necessary to enter and leave edit mode like in previous case, the error is observable from the start. But if we scope out and scope back in the changes are undone, in a way like in previous case.

RadRichTextEditor: MoveToDocumentElementStart works incorrectly when called consecutively with PermissionRangeStart as parameter
When the MoveToDocumentElementStart is called with parameter that is PermissionRangeStart and then is called a second time, the position moves to the previous position instead.

To reproduce: run the project and maximize the form. When you enter some text you will notice that the text is cut off.

Workaround: use paged layout.

When you load a HTML file where the image is not loaded properly and you try to export RadRichTextEditor's document to a pdf, an error occurs. 

If the image doesn't exist you can skip loading in the document. Thus, exporting to pod at a later moment won't produce an error. You can use the HtmlImportSettings.LoadImageFromUrl event and handle the image loading:

    Sub New()

        ' This call is required by the designer.

        Dim provider As HtmlFormatProvider = New HtmlFormatProvider()

        Dim htmlImportSettings As HtmlImportSettings = New HtmlImportSettings() 
        AddHandler htmlImportSettings.LoadImageFromUrl, AddressOf LoadImageFromUrl
        provider.ImportSettings = htmlImportSettings

        Using inputStream As FileStream = File.OpenRead("..\..\Email HTML.html")
            Me.RadRichTextEditor1.Document = provider.Import(inputStream)
        End Using

    End Sub

    Private Sub LoadImageFromUrl(sender As Object, e As LoadImageEventArgs)
        e.Handled = True
    End Sub

When there is a hyperlink enclosed in another annotation (e.g comment, bookmark, read-only range), and the user moves the caret position just before or just after the hyperlink, and starts typing there, the text is inserted with the style of the hyperlink (by default, blue with blue underline). Instead, the text should be inserted without such style.

Applying negative LeftIndent or FirstLineIndent of a paragraph in web layout mode will visualize the paragraph to the left of RadRichTextBox boundaries.
