New in version 19

This topic includes changes introduced in version 19.1.

Compatibility issues

In TDBRichViewEdit, unused styles are deleted not only if AutoDeleteUnusedStyles = True, but also if FieldFormat = rvdbRTF or rvdbDoX.

TRichView.SavePicture parameters are changed.

TRichView.RTFReadProperties.ErrorCode is renamed to RTFErrorCode.

Backspace in tables deletes the selected rows/columns (or the table itself, if all cells are selected). To turn off this feature, assign False to RichViewTableAutoAddRow.
