    Hi Telerik Team,

    I remember that RadRichTextBox did't support exporting and importing in DOC.It supports only DOCX.But I really have a need for DOC.Any chance that you will support that format in a future???Or may be any converter between DOC and DOCX files????

    Hello Anthony,

    We will conciser introducing DOC format-provider (at least Import). However it requires significant reverse engineering efforts. In addition it is an older format that is rarely used from our customers thus the priority of this feature is not very high. That's why I am not able to specify with great certainty whether or when it will be available. List of new features for the next release (2011.Q3) is pretty filled up and most probably DOC support will not be included in this release. As a workaround you can use some other 3rd party tools to convert document formats, or MS tools and utilities like the following:

    Let me know whether this helped.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Telerik RadRichTextBox!

    Doc format is fairly outdated, therefore is with low priority in our to-do list. It depends on our road map and I couldn’t be more specific about the time frame when this might be implemented. At this point the feature is not scheduled. 

    I could only recommend you to convert your document to one of the supported by the control formats. You can find information about all the supported file formats and the providers in this article.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Regards,
