Formats and Conversion

RadWordsProcessing does not need any external dependencies in order to convert documents from/to the supported formats. The document model is independent from UI and can be used on the server side as well as on the client.

You can use RadWordsProcessing to convert among variety of formats. Below you can see a feature / format matrix that describes supported features by file format. The currently supported format are Docx, Rtf, Html and plain text, as plain text is excluded from the comparison.
