Support for forms. The feature is named 'Interactive forms' in the PDF specification. Main scenarios to consider: - Reading of the data in the forms. - Writing data to the forms. Available in R2 2017 Release
At this point the PdfFormatProvider does not support floating images and these elements are skipped when exporting to PDF. The feature is trivial for floating images with "Behind Text"/"In Front of Text" settings, but otherwise floating images are affecting the text layout in complex ways.
The API should allow you to perform a text-based search and return the parent element(s) of the result(s) or directly the found element(s).
Implement support for content controls (a.k.a. Structured document tags), which will allow inserting editing controls in the document: - Rich Text - Plain Text - Check Box - Combo Box - Drop-down list - Date picker Do not confuse this feature with form fields support (see https://feedback.telerik.com/Project/184/Feedback/Details/219850 ).
The attached sample project below demonstrates a possible workaround for PAGE and NUMPAGES fields when exporting to PDF. The demo shows how to generate document from scratch containing PAGE and NUMPAGES fields and export it to PDF.
If a worksheet spans more than one page, you can print row and column headings or labels (also called print titles) on every page to ensure that the data is properly labeled.
This feature includes: table of figure, table of tables etc. TOC field contains PageRef fields inside it. To update it, we will need pagination (layout) support and PageRef fields implementation. Also TOC update can be influenced by TC fields presence in the document. Implement export to PDF.
Add support for shapes, and especially for shapes with textual content. In OOXML, shapes are represented by the wps:wsp element, and shapes with textual content by <wps:txbx>, <w:txbxContent>. Such shape can be added to a Word document using the Insert -> Text -> Text Box -> Draw Text Box, or through a shape's context menu -> Add Text. Do not confuse these shapes with Text/Rich Text content controls (see https://feedback.telerik.com/Project/184/Feedback/Details/190057 )
Implement repeating header row for tables when exporting with PdfFormatProvider. A similar functionality can be achieved using the editing API of RadPdfProcessing. There is attached a project showing a sample implementation. More details are available in the forum post at http://www.telerik.com/forums/repeat-table-heading-after-page-break#kH616fyAKUiDl6WAknUILg
This will enable printing with the following printing options: - Fit Sheet on One Page - Fit All Columns on One Page - Fit All Rows on One Page - Custom automatic scaling A possible implementation of a similar behavior is to use the PageSize property of WorksheetPageSetup and subtract the corresponding margin values (from the Margins property) from the width to calculate how many columns are fitting in some particular page size with 100% scale factor. Available in R2 2018 Official Release version.

These file formats are very similar to DOCX, and can be easily imported with loss of some information (e.g. macros).
There should be an option allowing users to embed fonts in their documents. Seems to be applicable for DOCX and RTF, MS Word has such option in File -> Options -> Save.
