File Formats: Rich Text Format (RTF)

The Rich Text Format (RTF) specification is a method of encoding formatted text and graphics for easy transfer between applications. Currently, users depend on special translation software to move word-processing documents between different MS-DOS®, Windows, OS/2, Macintosh, and Power Macintosh applications. This raster format was developed by Microsoft and is used by WordPad.

RTF uses the ANSI, PC-8, Macintosh, or IBM PC character set to control the representation and formatting of a document, both on the screen and in print. With the RTF Specification, documents created under different operating systems and with different software applications can be transferred between those operating systems and applications. LEADTOOLS can load versions 1, 2, and 3.

LEADTOOLS supports loading this format as raster image or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) document.

The default extension used by this format is: RTF.
