    There is a problem that seems to have happened with Silverlight 5 and the RichTextBox printing to PDF files using Adobe Acrobat printer driver. The fonts come out too small and they are no longer WYSIWYG like they used to be. Using your own example on your web site ( and printing to Adobe PDF using version 11 of their printer driver produces this result shown in the attached file.

    Edited: More Information
    The issue appears to be with SL5's vector printing and Adobe Acrobat's driver. Using a 3rd party PDF driver works and if I print my own documents it has the same problem until I use PrintBitmap to force the old style printing. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do with the RichTextBox control as it only provides a Print method.

    Is there a way to force the bitmap printing with the RichTextBox print method?

    Hello Rich,

    Thank you for the additional information about the printing. Currently, there is no way to force bitmap printing with RadRichTextBox. However, we will consider adding such settings for one of the upcoming versions, possibly even for the service pack expected in less than a month.

    However, you should have in mind that it could be much slower for big documents and will have a bigger memory footprint.
