New in version 1.8
Changes that can affect existing code:
▪OnHTMLSaveImage is called for tables to save background image;
▪OnHTMLSaveImage is called to save cell background image; in this case, parameter ItemNo = -1; you can distinguish saving of document background and cell background by RVData parameter.
▪parameters are changed in OnChanging event (should not be a problem because this event is rarely used);
▪table.OnDrawBorder event has two new parameters: Row and Col;
▪changes in rvteoHTMLCode and rvteoRTFCode (Options of text style);
▪TRichView does not use font external leading any more (it may add extra spacing between lines), so its line spacing just like in TRichViewEdit now.
▪default selection mode: select by words;
▪RVF version number is changed from 1.2 to 1.3 (see RVF specification); new version of RVF is not completely compatible with the old version (new version of TRichView can read old RVF; old versions of TRichView may not read new RVF);
▪rvprSticking protection option meaning was changed (split into 3 rvprStick*** options).
You can disallow resizing in the given RichViewEdit by including rvoNoImageResize in its EditorOptions property.
▪rvepSpacing – spacing around the item (image or control);
▪rvepResizable allows resizing the given control with the mouse;
▪rvepDeleteProtect protects the non-text item from deletion in editing operations.
