TextDynamic as Popup Editor (wptextCreateDialog)
TextDynamic can also be used in a "popup editor mode". Here You only have to call one method from the DLL to create an editor window. It will include the toolbar, ruler and even a seconday editor window for the display of thumbnails. This editor window can be displayed on your form. You do not need any COM to do this, just load the DLL dynamically. This makes it very easy to upgrade legacy applications significantly and provide Your customers with high end word processing capabilities right in Your application.
Create and Print Labels
TextDynamic can be used to create, preview and print labels. Internally the formatting routine distributes the text on multiple label rectangles on a virtual label sheet - a manual page break let it start a new label. So it is possible to edit the text on the label sheet - for example remove some labels before everything is printed.
Interface to create e-mails
Using the interface IWPMapi the parts of an e-mail (text, html attachment, images) can be automatically created and optionally also beeing send using the Mail API function.
Edit multiple documents in a single text contol
TextDynamic is able to switch between many documents which are managed internally - quickly and flickerfree. Even a tab set can be added to switch beteen the documents. So you can work with multiple documents without the over head of the MDI framework.
Mail Merge (work with fields in text)
MailMerge is used to replace texts fields with data. TextDynamic is very strong is this aspect. It is possible to insert formatted text (RTF, HTML) or images. Mailmerge with TextDynamic is not destructive, this means the merge process can be performed over and over again since the field markers are not overwritten.
Customizable User Interface
The toolbar plays an important role in an application. With TextDynamic you can either use your own toolbar or customize the included toolbar.
Bullets, Numbering and Outlines
Create bulleted lists, multi level outlines or simple numbering. The property dialog makes it easy to change every aspect of the bullet text, even the color can be customized.
Header and Footer are edited WYSIWYG
TextDynamic (also BASIS edition) supports true header and footer texts. Such text are formatted texts placed on top or bottom of a range of pages. It is even possible to select certain texts for certain pages. Movable images can be part of a header text, if they are located outside the header area they serve as watermark.
Layout Modes (Page, Normal, Thumbnail...)
TextDynamic has a multitude of different layout modes. All those modes are WYSIWYG. In the page layout modes it is possible to edit the header/footer texts on the virtual page. ...
Option: Create PDF with integrated engine

Powerful Image Support
Embedded image can be handled as a character or linked to paragraph or to a page with relative positioning. Text wrapping is possible on left or right side and also on both sides! Images can be used to create watermarks, simply place a large, page anchored image into the header text.
Powerful Tables (Nestable, repeated header/footer)
With TextDynamic one table cell can contain multiple paragraphs and even other tables. The height of a row can exceed he length of a page since, unlike some competing products, TextDynamic supports page breaks in table rows.
Dialogs are included
