Rich Text Format

File extension .rtf
File category documents
Description RTF – is a standard format intended for the exchange of text data. Created in 1982 with the participation of experts from Adobe and Microsoft, so it is supported by most of the software solutions of the latter. It is integrated in Windows with version 2.0, allowing to exchange between applicable annexes. The format provides the ability to create a document in one OS and transfer to another OS, while it is not designed to work with images and other objects. The user can print text in Word, saving it with a .rtf extension, and export it to a recipient using WordPerfect 6.0, regardless of the version of Windows. RTF files can be opened in any modern editor capable of formatting text documents. The format allows you to save the selection settings for text fragments, color solutions for the design of symbols, underlined text and much more.
Technical details The specification of this format applies standards of ANSI, PC-8 symbols display, and some others. It sets control words and symbols that act as a command in the formatting process. If an extended text document is saved, the writer RTF processes it, and adapts the symbols of the word processor to the Rich Text Format language. During the reading process, the RTF reader formats the defining symbols, transforming the RTF language into the formatting of the text editor that the document is to visualize.
