    Hi there,

    Version: 2013.2.611.45

    I have a word document that i am importing and working with. It's a form that has a 3 of 9 barcode string vertically in the left margin. When I import the document and show it in the editor, the barcode is no longer top to bottom direction but left to right,.

    I read around this forum and stackoverflow and I gathered that text direction is not supported at this point in time. Has this changed at all since our version?

    I also tried the suggestion of using a WPF label rotated and put inside a UIInlineContainer and inserted into the editor, which works fine, but as i came across in the documentation these are not saved when output to docx, which i must do.

    Do i have any options whatsoever to at least simulate rotated text?

    Many thanks for your time,

    Hello J,

    I'm afraid rotating text in RadRichTextBox is not possible at this point.

    Like you mentioned, one possible solution is to place an InlineUIContainer which contains a rotated element, but preserving it to DOCX would not be possible. Unfortunately, I'm unable to suggest another approach for achieving the desired result.

    Let us know if you have other questions or comments.

    We need to support rotated text in a RadDocument exported to Microsoft Word .docx file format. 
    The .docx file is created in C# code only with no XAML and no RichTextBox control created.
