    When I import a MS-Word document into a Rich Text Box, the background  of the document always turns white, irrespective of the colour it had in Word.  Is this a feature, or am I missing something?

    Hi Merokko, Felix,

    We do not support different page colors of the document yet. If you are using RadRichTextBox in flow layout mode (the default one), you can set RadRichTextBox's Background and if you are using paged layout mode, you can change the template of the page like this:

    Copy Code
    <telerik:RadRichTextBox Name="editor" KeyDown="editor_KeyDown" KeyUp="editor_KeyUp" >
        <telerik:RadDocument LayoutMode="Paged" />
            <Style TargetType="telerikUI:Page">
                <Setter Property="Template">
                        <ControlTemplate TargetType="telerikUI:Page">
                                <Border Padding="0" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#646464" Margin="-1" Background="Black" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch">
                                        <DropShadowEffect Color="#333333" ShadowDepth="6" BlurRadius="12" Opacity="0.7"/>
                                <Canvas x:Name="PageContentPresenter" Background="LightGoldenrodYellow" />
                <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Center" />
                <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value="Top" />

    where the namespaces are declared as follows:
    Copy Code

    The import of Docx documents that have different page colors, however, will not work until page colors on the document are supported by the format provider. We will consider adding page background color to the document in one of the next releases.
    If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact us again. Greetings,

    Hello Iva,
    Thanks.  I can live with only one colour.
