Provide option for configuring the measurement units (centimeters [cm], inches [in]) used throughout RadRichTextBox UI, including: - Ruler (currently supported and configurable through DocumentRuler.MeasurementUnit property which is of type UnitTypes) - Table dialogs - for indents, widths and heights - Paragraph indentation (currently shown only in points [pts]) - Section properties - header from top and footer from bottom - Page setup - columns width in Columns dialog - Page Margins and Page Size in Ribbon UI Currently parts of the dialogs and controls shows measures in pixels (actually DIPs), other in inches (e.g. ruler).
Provide option for exporting InlineUIContainer and FloatingUIContainer as images to docx and RTF format.
This includes resizing, rotating and moving. Consider implementing the full functionality for interaction with both floating and inline images.
The attribute is currently not supported when importing HTML documents. It can be replaced with the corresponding CSS property applied to each cell of the table.
In MS Word, the users can change the background color of the page.
A 'w:background' property is applied to the whole document in DOCX, and this property is used as a page color in Paged layout mode, and as a background color in Web layout mode.
When implementing, think of whether RadRichTextBox.Background should be synchronized with this property when RadRichTextBox.DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings is true.
Workaround: Currently, background could be set using RadRichTextBox.Background property in Web layout mode, and using a custom style, as described in When the LayoutMode is Paged the Background forum thread, in Paged layout mode.
Enable import/export of read only ranges (protected parts of the document) from/to Rtf documents.
When a document is edited by more than one user with enabled Track Changes, there should be an option to show the changes of a certain or multiple users and hide the rest.
With the current implementation, when an image is selected, viewport is scrolled to the corresponding image document position: - In case of inline image, it moves to the end of the image, so that the image is fully visible. - In case of floating image, it moves to the position where image is anchored. The behavior of the MS Word (the view is not scrolled in such cases) is much more convenient.
Allow Span to be hidden when visualizing the document. For example, introduce a Span.IsHidden property. In MS Word, text is hidden using the Home -> Font -> Font -> Effects -> Hidden. In the RTF format, such text is preceded (marked) with a '\v' tag. In OOXML, the tag is <vanish/> Note: Hidden text is visualized with dotted underline when formatting symbols are shown. Hidden text is not exported to PDF.
Images with display: none could be made not-visible in the UI. The other elements could be skipped and not imported.
Currently, when an option is chosen from the drop-downs in Page Layout -> Page Setup -> Size/Margin/Orientation/Columns, the command is executed, but the item corresponding to the current value is not selected. For example, if the caret is in a Section with A3 size, Size -> drop-down -> A3 should be selected.
Currently RadDocument contains a lot of built-in (latent) table styles, which are always shown in the TableStylesGallery. Introduce API allowing to hide some of them.
Introduce an option enabling only proportional resizing to be allowed in the ImageSelectionAdorner (side middle thumbs should be disabled). The option can be added in the RadRichTextBox's ImageSelectionAdornerSettings as it already contains CanRotate, CanDrag, CanResize. Note that Images could also support Lock aspect ratio property, which is different.
Implement nested mail merge - creating mail merge reports using master-detail tables in a data source. Typical example of this is creating an invoices with mail merge, where each invoice contains a list of items. Workaround: for some scenarios creating custom merge field which evaluates to Table could simulate this behavior: http://www.telerik.com/forums/merge-reports#lUdH39ww00SnEhTLLlrXwA
When a table cell contains nested table, and the paragraph after the nested table is empty, this paragraph could be collapsed, as in MS Word. This gives better look to nested tables, similar to how browsers visualize nested HTML tables. Note that the paragraph should be visualized when the caret moves the position inside the paragraph. Currently the paragraph is visualized with its full height, making the layout different than MS Word - it appears that there are redundant space after the nested table.
Add support for importing of imaged defined with VML's v:imagedata inside v:image or v:shape. Currently such images are just skipped.
Adding support for exporting font style as font tag. Android's TextView for example support styling only using tags.
Add ability to combine revisions from different authors into a single document.
