    Hey nomen, we needed to do the same thing for our projects just recently. You can go into the HtmlEditorField.php file in sapphire/forms/ and go down to line 248. This will probably have a commented line that is a style dropdown for the editor. If you uncomment it, that will allow you to add custom styles to select and place their definitions in typography.css . That should get you started.

    Thanks jryancard!

    It works, but if i put my classes in editor.css instead of typography.css.
    I added this in HtmlEditorField.php

       new HtmlEditorField_dropdown("mceSetCSSClass", "styleSelect", array(
                "mceContentBody" => "mceContentBody",
                "red-text" => "red-text",

    In editor.css i put

       color: red;      

    In the CMS editor i see the dropdown with red-text. It appears two times, i don´t know why. One of then works perfectly and the other does nothing.
    The correct one creates

    <span class="red-text">mytext</span>

    It is perfect for me.
    But i need also to create <div id="red-text">mytext</div> and i don´t know ho to do it. I try to create in editor.css

       color: red;

    But it doesn´t work. Is there a way to do it?

    By the way, i read HtmlEditorField_dropdown api info but i think i don´t understand correcty how it works and how to use it. Can somebody explain it?

    Thank you in advance.
