Information about the object at the mouse position
The event TextContextMenuOpening provides TextContextMenuEventArgs, which has a property ContextMenuLocation (of type ContextMenuLocation enumeration), which contains information about the object where the context menu will be shown.I would like to be able to get this information from a Point, e.g. the Location of the MouseEventArgs.This would enab…
In v25 Help File, add mention of Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013
To use TXTextControl v25 away from Visual Studio, the machine running the code needs Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 installed. In a lot of cases this may already be in place, but in others (e.g. Azure VMs running Server 2012 R2 and Azure App Services), then this won't necessarily be the case, resulting in "Could not load…
Using "smart selection" interface inside TextFields & ApplicationFields
Following ticket #106794,We think it is essential that the smart selection interface will also work inside fields (e.g. double clicking a word, then extending the selection will select the entire next word, etc.)
Ability to extract embedded image from document
The TXTextControl.Image class has a constructor that allows you to initialize the image from a System.Drawing.Image.We need a method that does the reverse.Given an existingTXTextControl.Image, return a System.Drawing.Image.I have seen articles that hint that you can have an image "exported" to an external file, but we need this for embedded images…
Add SubtextpartDeleted and SubtextparetCreated events
There is no way to know when a subtextpart is deleted or created by the end user (by using backspace or cut and past... - not programmatically).For example, if we want to display a list with all the Subtextparts we don't know when to update this list.
Support for the printer tray selection for WPF.TextControl
We would like to request that support for the printer tray selection be added to WPF.TextControl.Currently, in the WPF TextControl 23, the control can load a document containing the w:papersrc directive, but then silently discards it. There also is no interface available to set printer tray selection using the Page Setup dialog.As such, the request…
Increase the limit of text within a table row
As you have confirmed for us, table rows are limited to about 65k of text and formatting data.While it may be possible to work around this limitation in many cases, can you please consider increasing this limit in a future release?With end users constantly pushing the limits of the software, it is likely only a matter of time before we find ourselv…
Two-Page Document View Option
We would like to request the ability to show a document in a two-page, side by side view.This would automatically reduce the magnification factor of the document so two pages could fit in the editing window.The feature would mimic the behavior that currently exists in MS Word when the "Two Page" toolbar button is clicked from the View men…
Add support for Microsoft CodeUI testing to the TxText .Net for WinForms control so that text entry and presentation can be validated automatically.https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh552522.aspx
Ability to Show Enhanced Options When Printing
When printing a document from the TX Text Control editor, it would be very beneficial to have a similar list of enhanced print options, similar to the screen that is presented in MS Word.Please see attachment.Additional options such as collation, orientation, pages per sheet and one-sided/two-sided printing would be included on this screen.This wou…
Add Option to Convert TXTextControl.Image to System.Drawing.Image
It would be great to export/convert a TXTextControl.Image within a document directly to a file/System.Drawing.Image without needing to export to whole document first and then retrieve the image file.
Ability to support CMYK images in documents and RTF/PDF outputs.
I would like the ability to add/copy images in CMYK format into Tx Text Control. I would also like these supported in the RTF and PDF output from the control, when saving files.
Ability to export image of textcontrol document in FloatingText viewmode
Provide some API to export the textcontrol document in FloatingText viewmode for WPF.
Show/Hide Hidden Text
In RTF, text between the \v and \v0 tags is hidden. It would be nice to be able to toggle the display of this text. In MS Word, CTRL+SHIFT+* will do it.
Block Text Selection
Ability to select a rectangular block of text, as in MS Word, by holding down the ALT key.
Merging With Numbered/Structured Lists
It would be nice if when you ran the merge functionality the numbering would restart on the merged document.What happens now is numbering continues for each merged page.
Full support for OTF
Currently, Microsoft's OTF font definition is not fully supported. OTF is the TTF's successor, thus supporting it would be beneficial for TX Text Control.
Compatibility with nested Content Controls
I would like to propose support for nested content controls. The requirement is the capability to access every Content Control nested inside a specific Parent Content Control and update its value.
Add meta data to documents when saving
It would be great to have the possibility to add meta data to PDF and Word Documents when they get saved (like the author or company field that you can view in the file properties). Some document management systems can automatically process those entries and some even reject files that don't have meta data!Technically, this could be just anoth…
Support transparent images
TXTextControl does not seem to respect the transparency (alpha) channel when rendering images. We would like to be able to add transparent images to documents for a watermark effect using the "above the text" option, and have the text or any tables show through. In TextControl, if the "above the text" option is used, the image completely obscures t…
Support of small caps
We need to format our text with small caps.
Add custom borders to documents
I would like to add custom borders to documents.
Provide an option to see the cursor when editor is not in focus
In integration with a speech recognition software, many users add text to the editor without the editor being in focus. The users still want to know where is the current cursor. Currently there is no such option in the TX editor.
Provide an API to know the type of end-line in a specific location
The TX Editor supports two types of end-line- backslash n and backslash v.If a developer wants to know which end-line exists in a certain editor position his/her options are limited. The TextChar.Char property will return backslash r for both. The textControl.Text property will return backslash n followed by backslash r for both. The only option is…
API to mark words with squiggly underline
We wanted to offer a feature request- API to mark words with squiggly underline. We are considering using third-party software for various text corrections (for instance grammar and NLP based text corrections). We would like to mark words (or a sentence) with squiggly underline (in a different color than the spellchecker's red) to inform the u…
We wanted to offer a feature request- adding Grammar Check to the TX Spell. We think that offering the users the option to mark wrong grammar in the document will greatly increase their user experience.Thanks

Since TX19 / 20 there are some fantastic new functions around tables and the ContextMenu.One feature is TableDeleteCell which is not actually exposed in the OCX. could you please consider exposing this routine in the next version.

Add Border and Shading feature in TXText control
Hi...Can you please add border and shading feature in TXText Control.Thanks & RegardsUmesh
As there are inconsistencies in character spacing between different word processing tools, I suggest, just like in the Microsoft Word, to add character spacing control. It can be placed in the Character or Font menu. By being able to modify character and line spacing it would be possible to have finer control over document layout.
Double Click event for selection of Items in Suggestion List in SpellCheckDialog
We have TxSpellCheck control for WinForms version 4.0.3. We need the feature where we can double click on item in Suggestion list. Also we need the write access to the suggestion list of SpellCheckDialog so that when we CreateCuggestion for incorrect word then result of that we can assign to SuggestionList of Dialogbox.
Ability to import MS Word comments
I would like to have the ability to import/view/hide/edit/... MS Word comments.Thanks
Different columns on same page
Multiple section support for combinations like 1-3-1 on the same page.
Ability to make PDF/A-1a
PDF/A-1a (accessible) generally requires more effort during the generation process but offers enhanced access to content (especially for text). The structure of PDF/A-1a has the advantage that the reuse of text – for example, by means of an export function – is generally unproblematic, avoiding issues such as misaligned paragraphs and truncated wor…
Make Images Clickable to Jump to URL
Make an Image clickable so that when clicked I can jump to an external URL or an internal bookmark.Something like Image.TargetURL would be ideal.
Auto re-size of table for simple control
It would be practical to have an auto re-size of tables and nested tables when text control i used as a simple control (with auto size). This to ensure that the content is always visible. It is understandable that an auto re-size is not available for normal page layout where the size of the display is fixed but it would really make sense for simple…
Ability to pause Undo/Redo
I would like the ability to pause the undo/redo stack without clearing it. This would be helpful for me because what I like to do is insert tables with a printable border already in place. If I do this currently, the undo button will simply undo each border around each cell in the table separately. The only way I can get around this is to clear the…
Dialog "Special Chars" for bullet lists
The dialog for choosing a special character for a bullet list should be extended with a combobox for choosing a font, so the user can choose not only the characters which are included in the font "Symbol".
It would be nice if the default FilterOption when uploading a picture would be All Files (*.*). Currently the user has to change the FilterOptions with every upload.
