    Hi Telerik,
    I'm using Telerik controls for Silverlight Q1 SP1 2012, version 2012.1.326.1050.
    When I open a docx file with a TextBox shape by your RichTextBox, the shape disappears.
    Your RichTextBox seems not support Shape like MicrosoftOffice because I don't see 'Insert Shape' function in your control's toolbar.
    Then can you provider this in next build?

    You are correct, RadRichTextBox doesn't currently support shapes. Vector drawing falls somewhat outside the main focus of RadRichTextBox - text editing, so we're not currently planning to implement it, but we will take your request into consideration.
    Let us know if you have any other comments.

    All the best,

    We have an urgent requirement to integrate "shapes" into RadRichTextBox control. Could you please let me know if this is done now ?

    Hello Rick,

    Shapes are still not implemented in RadRichTextBox. As Ivailo said this is outside the main focus of the control so we do not have immediate plans to implement this.
