Hello!

I want to use variables in the middle of the imported rtf document.

When I write:
RtfBox.InsertField(new DocumentVariableField() { VariableName = "Name" }, FieldDisplayMode.Code);
field appears at the beginning of the document.

Is there any way to force field to appear at concrete place?

Hello Sergey,

All of RadRichTextBox's Insert~() methods work with the caret position (or document selection if such is available). By default when you load a document the caret is located at the first position in the document which is most likely the cause of the behavior you are observing.

The DocumentPosition class exposes a set of handy methods which allow you to move the caret programmatically. For example, the next code snippet would move the caret at the end of the document and allow you to insert content there.
RtfBox.Document.CaretPosition.MoveToLastPositionInDocument();
     RtfBox.InsertField(new DocumentVariableField() { VariableName = "Name" }, FieldDisplayMode.Code);

I hope this helps.
