Compatibility issues

Assignment to PageBreaksBeforeItems requires reformatting even if the given item starts a paragraph (because it clears text flow around side-aligned items).

OutlineLevel property allows saving headings in HTML and RTF, so be careful if you assumed that saved HTML and RTF files do not have headings.

Some existing code may assume that the text searching functions can select a substring only in a single text item. While the new behavior (searching in multiple text items) requires specifying a new option in the parameter of SearchText methods explicitly, GetRVSearchOptions and GetRVESearchOptions functions always return this new option.
