    Post How to start a RTF editor from scratch

    I know this may sound silly to some of you experienced guys out there but itís really important for me and my group at school, we need to create a software that allows the user to create a new RTF document from scratch (like an editor where you can center, change font size, style, save, insert picture), it also needs to be able read a docx document with images and format included and save it as a RTF document.
    What we have done so far is being able to open the .docx document, extract the text without format and put it into an RTF document out. In other words using docx4j library we have been able to transform a .docx document text to .rtf, no pictures included, no formatting, just plain text surrounded by [ ].
    We have made some progress today but we canít figure out the next steps, considering the delivery date is in 72 hours, I thought itíd be a good idea to ask for help from more experienced people than us.
    Please leave your answers or request info about the project, weíll be glad to learn from you guys. :)

    Default Re: How to start a RTF editor from scratch

    Are there any third party libraries that will format output for an RTF file? Try searching the web.

    Otherwise get the doc for the contents of an RTF file and roll your own.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
