Add the ability to view "rich text format" text in a grid or text box that is not HTML but like an RTF file.
I have data that is in RTF format to be able to format font the way the users want with links, etc.  To show that on a kendo grid is touch.  had to create/find a regular expression and do some special formatting for the links.  You currently only have editing for HTML

Hello Patrick,

The functionality is available in the Editor component. Thus, it can be specified as a custom editor for the Grid and show the formatted text.

For more information on how to use custom editors in the Grid component check out the following resources:

Thanks for the proposal, Patrick.

The only way that could be possible at a future point is by integrating our editor widget for editing grid cells (via a template column), when it supports import & export to RTF. Check the status of this suggestion regularly on this part:

Still note that the resulting output from the editor will be html and not rtf.
