    RichTextEditor as editor in macro parameter not showing right toolbar in production


    I have managed to implement a Rich Text Editor as a parameter in macros following advice from other posts. It's working very well, but I wanted it to have only some tools visible in the toolbar of the editor. enter image description here

    This is also working as expected locally. When deploying it to the production server it still showing the full toolbar.

    enter image description here

    Any idea why it's not working on the production site.

    I'm adding all the source code here. It may be some help for others who is trying to add this to Umbraco.

    First the package.manifest store in App_Plugins\UmbracoForms\package.manifest:

      "propertyEditors": [
          "alias": "RichTextMacro",
          "name": "RichTextMacroEditor",
          "isParameterEditor": true,
          "editor": {
            "view": "~/App_Plugins/UmbracoForms/RichTextMacro/RichTextMacro.html",
            "valueType": "TEXT"
      "css": [
      "javascript": [

    Made a new folder: App_Plugins/UmbracoForms/RichtextMacro and added three files: RichTextMacro.controller.js

            function ($scope) {
                $scope.textInput = {
                    label: 'bodyText',
                    description: '...',
                    view: '/umbraco/views/propertyeditors/rte/rte.html',
                    value: $scope.model.value,
                    config: {
                        editor: {
                            toolbar: ["ace", "undo", "redo", "cut", "link" ],
                            stylesheets: [],
                            dimensions: {
                                height: 200
                            mode: "classic"
                $scope.$watch('textInput.value', function (newValue, oldValue) {
                    $scope.model.value = newValue;

    and RichTextMacro.html:

    <div ng-controller="Macro.RichTextMacro">
        <div class="macroRte" style="border: 1px solid #ccc">
                <umb-editor model="textInput"></umb-editor>


    .macroRte .umb-editor {
    position: relative;}

    If the same code is on both enviroments. I kind of suspect caching, did you clear out cache via settings, emptied the temp folder, ....

    Yes, it was obvious. It fixed the problem :-) Thanks.

    Hope the source code can help others trying to use the Rich Text editor as a property editor.
