Convert Word doc to RTF in memory

I have a word document that I want to convert to RTF in memory.

So my sample code is like this:

Document doc = new Document(filepath);

string RTF = doc.ConvertToRTF();

or something similar.

I know I can save to disk or stream as RTF format and the convert but is there a easier way?

<span lang=“EN-GB” style=“font-size:10.0pt;font-family:“Courier New”;color:#2B91AF;mso-font-kerning:
0pt;mso-no-proof:yes”>Document<span lang=“EN-GB” style=“font-size:10.0pt;
font-family:“Courier New”;mso-font-kerning:0pt;mso-no-proof:yes”> doc = new Document(MyDir

  • “in.docx”);<o:p></o:p>

// Save document to stream as RTF

MemoryStream rtfStream = new MemoryStream();

SaveOptions options = SaveOptions.CreateSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Rtf);

doc.Save(rtfStream, options);

rtfStream.Position = 0;

StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(rtfStream);

string text = reader.ReadToEnd();
