Regularly I see topics on the SDN5 forums where people ask if it is possible to use a custom Rich Text editor. Wll, yes it is. You can use so called profiles with the Rich Text editor. These profiles are stored in the Core database under /sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/. There are some default pre-configurated profile which you van duplicate and customize to your own needs.

To use these profile you need to set the source value of an rich text field in your template.

    Thanks for the information.

    Could not find this info anywhere else.

  2. There is also a config setting which determines the default rich text editor profile, so you don’t have to remember to put it in the source of every Rich Text field!
