Hi Antonio,

Thanks for your inquiry. You can populate RichTextBoxField as following. But I am afraid we have noticed it is malfunctioning at the moment with list items. We have logged an investigation ticket PDFNEWNET-37413 in our issue tracking system to resolve the issue. We will notify you as soon as it is resolved.

var htmlText =


  • One
  • Two


string pagePath = myDir + "Teste_2.pdf";

var doc = new Document(pagePath);

var richTBF = doc.Form["Title_9fnF8b*1JO8NbqjZNj-YoA"] as RichTextBoxField;

richTBF.RichTextValue = htmlText;

string newdocName = myDir + "test_richtextboxfield.pdf";

using (var fileStream = File.Create(newdocName))





We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Best Regards,
