And what about support for .DOC natively?
There are no components exists to import/export MS Word DOC natively.
You can make it as optional add-on for additional money...

The problem in saving DOC and DOCX files with Word2007's converters is solved in v11.0.7 (available for registered users).

May be the converter does not understand all image formats in RTF.
(when exporting, TRichView saved RTF, then a converter converts this RTF to another format, such as DOCX).

You can play with RichView.RTFOptions for better results.

Hi Sergey.
I tried to export this rtf file: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=X0OAONTC
Which settings I should use (from RTFOptions) so all images could be exported in doc file...
I tried rvrtfSaveBitmapDefault but it didn't work :(
Could you help me please..?
Thank you in advance.

Cosmin3, as I can see, this file has some metafiles (which are exported to docx) and some bitmaps (which are not).
Unfortunately, TRichView does not have an option to export bitmaps as metafiles to RTF (rvrtfSaveBitmapDefault allows only choosing how to save non-RTF image types, such as TIcon).

I can suggest using PNG for exporting bitmaps. Include PngImage in your project, call RV_RegisterPngGraphic(TPNGObject) (or TPNGImage, depending on your version of Delphi) one time before the first file operation, include rvrtfPNGInsteadOfBitmap in RTFOptions.

Changing it to jpeg helps but it is only temporary. Why does this happen? Is it a bug?
