    I'm trying to upload a Word document into the book control using the RadBook Integration demo on your site. I've uploaded this document (the only one I could find on my PC), "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v3.0\SDK Help\en-US\Changes.docx" using the Open button on the example.

    The document appeared to load ok, it was only when I started to compare it with the original that I realised there was quite a bit of information missing (eg the Table of Contents), section 4 etc.

    Am I missing something or is this a major bug with the integration of docments into RadBook.

    Hello Dwight,

     The differences between the original document and the way the document is presented in the book are due to the fact that on import the document is mapped to elements of our document model and there are still some features that we do not support. 

    1. We do not support table of contents. Thus, this part of the document is ignored;
    2. We only support inline images, i.e. if you have images and text is supposed to flow/ wrap around the images, the image may appear in a different place;
    3. We have yet to implement nested lists (2011.Q1, which is due in mid-March). That is why all list items are regarded as elements of the same list. As for section 4 ("Breaking Changes since Silverlight 2"), it appears as list item 33, on page 44, which is a problem that will address in the next version.
    If you have any other questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
