How can you get CSS styles and formatting to appear in C5.5.1 Composer

I've been searching through the forum but can't seem to find the answer to this: how can you get the Composer window to apply the typography.css and styles.css files to the TinyMCE rich text editor?

I'm trying to use Composer to manage a blog. When writing a new blog post, the font size inside the TinyMCE editor is pretty small... and looking in the <head> of the page I see that Composer hasn't loaded any of the stylesheets for the theme for the site.

Is there any way to get the stylesheets for a theme added in to the Composer window for either a page_type or block type?

Any thoughts on this? At a minimum, I'd love to get the font that displays in the TinyMCE editor in Composer to be larger... it really is pretty small.

We ran into this same issue. And finally dove in to figure out what was going on.

The content block (/concrete/blocks/content/editor_config.php) brings in typography.css for the TinyMCE config (on line 20... content_css : "<?php echo $theme->getThemeEditorCSS()?>").

But, the element used in composer and blocks (/concrete/elements/editor_config.php) does not set content_css. Unsure if this is an error or intentional (perhaps because you can use more than one theme?).

And of course, right after figuring that out, I found some posts in the forums of people who addressed this :)

Two approaches that seem to work:

* Override editor_config.php:

* Set content_css in the TinyMCE custom config in the dashboard:

I think the approach we'll experiment with is using the RTE config in the dashboard.
