Supported Document Formats

ASPxRichEdit supports the following file formats.

  • Office Open XML format (aka MS Office 2007 or DOCX)
  • Microsoft Word 97-2003 format (DOC)
  • Rich Text Format (RTF)
  • Plain Text (TXT)
  • HyperText markup language (HTML)
  • Web page archive format (MHTML)
  • OpenDocument format (ODT, implemented by the OpenOffice.org office suite)
  • WordML format (XML)
  • Electronic Publication (EPUB)
  • Portable document format (PDF - programmatic export only)
    RichEdit exports documents to PDF using the DevExpress PDF export server engine. The server engine's document layout might differ from the RichEdit's client document layout. So, the final layout in the resulting PDF file may not be the same as the client document layout displayed in RichEdit.
    See demo: Export to PDF | Learn more...


Document printing in RichEdit is performed in two stages:

  • Exporting the active document to PDF,
  • Printing the PDF document through a client browser's dialog.
