Hello Telerik team,

With the lastest version of Rad RichTextBox, we see it only support import *.docx, *.HTML and *.Xaml format. Doesn't RichTextBox support *.doc format, does it?

Thanks,
Triet

Hello Triet Nguyen Cong,

Unfortunately RadRichTextBox for Silverlight does not support DOC format (Ms Office 2003 or earlier). We will conciser introducing DOC format-provider (at least Import) but I am not able to specify any time-frame for its availability. List of new features for Q3 is pretty filled up and most probably this feature will not be included in this release. As a workaround you can use some other 3rd party tools to convert document formats, or MS tools and utilities like the following:

Let me know whether this helped.
