I'm currently working on a PB project that use native RichTextEdit Control
in order to produce a letter in RTF.

But I do not have access to properties such right indent, table, etc.

I found in this forum that the RTE control is RTF 1.3 compatible but its
development has been frozen (why ?)

Can someone tell me wich RTE control from third party I should use in order
to have access to almost every properties of the RTF format ?

We use the TX text Control from the Imaging Source Europe.

It also converts MS word docs.

Alex,

We were looking at TX Text as well, but were a little concerned since the
company didn't officially support PowerBuilder as a development platform
(even though they have knowledge base articles about PowerBuilder on their
website).

Can you tell me if you have encountered any issues using TX Text??

TIA

It's been fine so far. We use it to import MS word doc files and then save
them as RTF. We also use it to bring in HTML documents and display them.
It's a LOT easier to generate custom documents in HTML and let the OCX
convert them to RTF than it is to do it in RTF. I'm talking about mostly
minor formatting such as bold face, paragraph formatting and indenting.
