Text Formatting
The DevExpress ASP.NET Rich Text Editor ships with a comprehensive set of text formatting tools.
Character Formatting
Extended formatting options including a complete set of built-in text formatting dialogs.
Character Formatting
Our ASP.NET Rich Text Editor delivers all the major text formatting features your end-users have come to expect from a feature-rich word processor, including font settings (font name, font size), character style (bold, italics, underlined) background and foreground color. The RTF Editor includes a complete set of pre-built Character Formatting dialogs and are available for use in your next web project without writing a single line of code.
Paragraph Formatting
From alignment and spacing to indentation, bullets and numbering.
Paragraph Formatting
This animation helps illustrate the comprehensive set of paragraph formatting options we've incorporated into our Rich Text Editor. From paragraph alignment and spacing to indentation, bullets and numbering - everything is easily accessible via integrated toolbar buttons.
Paragraph and character based styles with style inheritance.
Much like Microsoft Word, our Rich Text Editor supports both paragraph and character based Document Styles (along with style inheritance). The built-in Style Gallery allows end-users to apply formatting to selected document content.
Bullets & Numbering
From simple bullets and numbers to fully custom outlines, characters and lists.
Bullets & Numbering
In addition to basic Bullets & Numbering available via command buttons on the Ribbon, end-users can invoke our built-in Bullets and Numbering Dialog in order to customize bullets/numbers (such as bullet character, position, number format, style, position, etc) as needed.
Create tables via drag & drop or use built in dialogs to modify its structure.
Create, modify and display Tables within any document. Multiple table-related features you've come to expect from word processors such as Microsoft Word are built right in. End-users can modify cell borders, change column width and row height via drag & drop. We've also got built-in support for border effects, shading, cell content alignment, and common table operations such as insert cells above, below, to the right and to the left.
Floating Objects
Pictures and Text Boxes
Floating Objects
Whether its pictures or text boxes, your RTF documents can include any number of floating objects, with full rotation support. Objects within a document can be anchored in one of two ways: either inline, which means that the object is displayed within the text stream, or floating. Floating means that the object is strictly positioned, absolutely or relatively within the document, regardless of the text flow. To specify how text flows around the object, the text wrapping type is used.
"DevExpress support is as superb as the products and my client loves it. I would like to thank you and your team on supporting such a fine product."Robert Waite
Document Elements and Navigation
A rich collection of end-user options allow you to deliver Microsoft Word-inspired word processing solutions for your enterprise.
Split content into multiple sections with cutom page formatting.
You can easily split content into multiple sections, each with its own page format settings. Each section allows you to modify the number of available columns, page orientation and margins via the Ribbon's Page Layout Tab.
Headers & Footers
Add headers and footers to the first page, odd/even pages or individual sections.
Headers & Footers
A double click or a double tap in a document's header or footer region invokes the Rich Text Editor's Header & Footer Context Tab. As you can see in this animation, we've included a set of pre-defined commands to modify header/footer content. Your users can specify a different header/footer for the first page, odd or even pages or each individual section. And of course, headers/footers can include any content - from page numbers to images and text. 
Ribbon UI
Replicate the Office 365 UI in your next web project.
Ribbon UI
With our ASP.NET Rich Text Editor, you can create a user experience similar to that of Microsoft Word Online. We've integrated our ASP.NET Ribbon Control and added all the word processing commands you are likely to need. And because our Ribbon supports a "One-Line" display mode, we automatically change from a traditional Ribbon to One-Line mode when we detect the Editor running on a tablet/mobile device.
Hyperlinks & Bookmarks
Add hyperlinks and bookmarks with Microsoft Word-inspired dialogs.
Hyperlinks & Bookmarks
This animation helps illustrate built-in support for Hyperlinks & Bookmarks. To create a Hyperlink or Bookmark, you simply navigate to the appropriate position or select text within your document and then invoke the integrated Hyperlink/Bookmark Dialog from the Ribbon's Insert Tab.
Find & Replace
Search and update text within any document using built-in panels and dialogs.
Find & Replace
Integrated Find & Replace functionality makes it easy for users to locate and modify text within a document. Find & Replace is available via two unique UI elements: With the Search Panel, users can locate text and navigate through search results in a highly intuitive manner. With the Find & Replace dialog, users can locate text, navigate through search results and replace text in the result set (one by one or all at once).
"If you are in need of components that help you get the job done quickly then look no further than DevExpress. You will not be disappointed." Kevin A. WhiteDirector of Information Technology
Editing & Document Output
Deliver a user experience your end-users already know and love. Our RFT Editor includes a full suite of built-in dialogs along with must-have features like mail-merge and printing support.
Spell Checking
Check spelling as-you-type or check it on demand.
Spell Checking
Spell checking support with type-as-you-go error detection is built-in. Microsoft Word-inspired dialogs allow end-users to specify spelling options such as ignore uppercase/ignore mixed case words during the spell check process.
Mail Merge
Use document templates and easily merge information from your database.
Mail Merge
Mail Merge can address a variety of usage scenarios within an enterprise... from automated form letter generation to the printing of product catalogs. As you would expect, our Mail Merge engine allows you to bind the Editor to any external data source and preview content generated via merge operations within a given document template.
Export to PDF
Create Portable documents and export it to a file or stream.
Export to PDF

The ubiquity of the PDF file format cannot be understated and in this animation, we illustrate the ease with which you can generate PDFs directly from the DevExpress ASP.NET Rich Text Editor. Our ExportToPdf server method can export data to a file or stream as needed.

Printing is easy with our ASP.NET AJAX Rich Text Editor…Simply use the built-in Ribbon command and voila - your document is ready for printer output.

File Formats
File Formats
You can open and save documents using today's most popular document file formats, including: DOCX, DOC, RTF, TXT, HTML. We've made it extremely easy to initiate file operations via the RTF Editor's built-in Ribbon (Create a new document, open an existing document or save a document).
Document Level Restrictions
Restrict file operation access or limit document formatting availability.
Document Level Restrictions
Document Level Restrictions offer the infrastructure necessary to restrict document access for a specific user. You can prevent specific operations (open/save or copy/paste) from being executed within a document or limit modifications to the document formatting (character or paragraph formatting).
Unlimited Undo/Redo and full clipboard support.
Comprehensive text editing options include unlimited Undo and Redo support along with standard clipboard operations (Cut, Copy, and Paste) for both text and images.
