Can Crystal Reports print RTF accurately?

118 Views Last edit Jul 29 at 05:29 PM 2 rev

I've been using Crystal Reports SDK for many (many!) years. In the past, we tried to print RTF and it wasn't working correctly (note that I am talking about including RTF formatting in the report, NOT exporting). I can't recall the exact issue now. Has that been resolved? Can CR render RTF correctly now?

Are there limitations or compatibility issues?

Is there a better format to use, e.g., ODT (open document), or something else?

Any links to documentation or examples on how to do this would be appreciated (or just explain here).

We are using the latest Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 (64-bit) and Crystal Reports for .NET Framework. Our goal is to have the user able to enter rich text in a Windows app RichTextBox and then have that printed to the report. The report is very large, with about 60 subreports.
