    I know you can export content from a RadEditor to PDF, but can you programatically load a PDF on the server side?

    In my scenario, I would like to open a PDF file and get the text-only representation of it.  Loading it into a RadEditor and accessing the text property sounded like a nice idea.  I would also like to do this for other formats, such as Word (Doc/x), and whatever else I can get.

    Hello Barry,

    RadEditor is an HTML / XHTML editor and it does not offer out-of-the box the requested features to load PDF / Word and other types of content. You should search for third party controls that will convert these unsupported formats to HTML content that you can load after that in the editor via its Content property.

    All the best,
