@Sergey: TRichViewEdit is handling TBitmap instead of TGraphic. Why did you choose for this method? Table and cell backgrounds are TGraphic.

It was implemented as bitmap in very old versions, and we still did not change it. I agree, it's not convenient and we will change it before the release of TRichView 17.

One of the reasons why we still did not change it, pngs are much more useful in table backgrounds than the document background. You can see the document background through semitransparent cell background, but you can see nothing (but plain background color) through document background image.
