Exporting to Word

As of version 1.35 RSpace supports the exporting of single  RSpace documents into Word documents (.doc files). This allows for the editing of Word documents within RSpace before exporting the documents back to Word again. It also allows you to get content out of RSpace, similar to PDF export. However unlike PDF export, Word export can only be applied to a single document.

The export to word feature produces word documents with:

  • Images from the original RSpace document included
  • Attachment links that remain functional
  • Correctly formatted tables from the original RSpace document
