I've created a Fieldtype to use CK Editor so can take advantage of the advanced table formatting options over Redactor. However I want to keep Redactor for other content management. I came across this post so thought would give it a go: Craft WYSIWYG editor and CKEditor

All seemed to be working well but now whenever I focus on a redactor field the CKEditor buttons pop up. Any thoughts as to why this might be happening? Screenshot:

Fieldtype code posted up at https://gist.github.com/cole007/1ffa5036f8b79516ca34406d7b6833bf

Any thoughts as to what might be causing this?

At first glance, it looks like a little conflict around absolute positioning

I've had good success in 'massaging' the Craft CP using: Craft CPCSS

See here for a little more, too: Remove outdent & indent from Redactor2 "lists" button

Hope it helps, Cole
