Within the functionality of the RadRichTextBox, could the configuration support creating a slide similar to those found in PowerPoint?  The basic requirement would be a single page format, ability to place text in specific regions, add images or other content, nested text, etc.  This control seems so flexible that I wonder how far its scope could extend.

Hi Ceramist,

Thank you for the high evaluation of the rich text box.
I am afraid though that at this stage, it won't be possible to create a PowerPoint-like slide using the RadRichTextBox. You can add images and other custom UI elements to the content of the document, but placing them in random places on the page and creating templates, similar to those in PowerPoint will not be possible. Limiting the content of the document to one page or reordering of the pages is also outside of the scope of the control. Moreover, the document structure is fixed and nested text (different from text in nested tables) will not be possible.
As editing rich text is our main focus, our control has been developed to resemble Microsoft Word more and extending it for the needs of making presentations is not in our development plans.

All the best,
Iva
