    I'm looking at the Mail Merge example that came with the "RadControls for WPF Q1 2013 SP1" installation and I can export to 6 different formats (Word, Web, PDF, RTF, TXT and XAML).  Now, when I implement the same functionnallity in my application I only see 2 (TXT and XAML).  See attached images.

    How can I add items to the list or mergeable formats?

    Can I pick and choose which formats I can allow a user to export to?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Joel,

    Thank you for contacting us!

    The most common reason for the lack of all export formats is due to missing needed assembly references. The available import/export formats depend on the RadRichTextBox FormatProviders. Each FormatProvider class is located in a separate assembly reference matching its name. More information about different FormatProviders could be found at this article.

    Of course, it’s up to you which FormatProvider to use, consequently which document formats to be allowed for users to export to.

    I hope this helps!
