Rich text format (RTF)
 
As mentioned in Plain text format, the default format type of articles is plain text . As soon as you apply some type of formatting (like boldface, italics or paragraph centering), the article is automatically converted to Rich Text Format (RTF) and stays that way unless you convert it back to plain text.
 
All text in the article will immediately be converted to Rich Text when you:
 
What all these actions have in common is that hidden codes required for displaying these objects and attributes (such as 'bold', 'italic', 'center', etc.) are inserted into the TreePad article. Rich Text is visually more pleasing but uses much more space because of the hidden formatting code.
 
Note: Case conversion does not affect the format type of an article.
 
The Status bar displays "RTF" if the article's format type is rich text.
 
You can display rich text's hidden characters as symbols by selecting Main menu ⁄ View ⁄ Options ⁄ Article ⁄ Display options and ticking the various options such as Show paragraph markers, etc. This may help if you have difficulty undoing or changing a formatting attribute.
 
Rich text formatting is local to the article, so rich text does not change when default article format is changed, with the exception of font background color.
 
Converting from RTF to plain text removes images.
 
See Reversing, removing and converting formatting for instructions on how to convert rich text back to plain text if you need to do this.
 
Hyperlinks in rich text are displayed as underlined blue text without the file path or node id, and are called underlined  hyperlinks.
 
See Plain text format for a discussion of the relative merits of using rich text and plain text.
