Happy guy.

That got it!

I did some more testing on this and here is what I found...

You have at least two bugs with the HTMLEditor.

Bug #1) If you have set the initial content to anything other than an empty string, when you change any settings on the editor with the wizard you will be reset to an empty string for initial content.

Bug #2) If you want custom styles to show up in the styles list of the editor you cannot save your settings as a preset. The minute you check "save as preset" and give them a name you will loose your styles.

I inserted a new editor on a blank page, used the advanced manager options preset as you told me to and then set my styles up.
They correctly displayed in the list after I updated the site.

I then went back in and made no changes other than to save the settings as a preset.
They no longer showed in the list after updating the site.

From this I gather that the editor will not load your custom styles css file if you save your settings as your own named preset.

If I were your dev team I would take a good long look at this HTMLEditor as it seems to have a few issues.

Well, it works for me now so what the heck. :)

Thanks for all the help!

Note: I took your advise and set my div styles up as classes and they show up fine in the styles list too. Thanks!


Oh yea, if you guys have a beta test list for clients willing to beta test new products, feel free to add me to it. I'm a sr. software engineer with 35 years experience working for MS, Sun, etc. now working at my own company doing web development. I would be happy to help you all test your products while working on my site development.
