    I'm using the RadRichTextBox 2011 Q1 release with the RtfFormatProvider. When I've inserted an image it seems to be converted using the rtf pngblip tag and png format. For compatibility reasons, I really need the image to be saved in Windows metafile format using the rtf wmetafile8 tag. Is this at all possible?

    Thank you heaps for the format provider as it works really well in most areas,

    Hello Joanna,

    First of all thank you for the positive feedback.
    Unfortunately we don't support exporting images in wmf format. The reason for this is that Silverlight does not support wmf as an image format, so when a document is imported from rtf, all wmf (and also bmp) images are converted to png in order to be displayed correctly. The result is that all wmf data is lost during the import process and cannot be exported.
    We'll be glad to help you further if you have more questions.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
