Migrate your Heiler HighEdit based applications to TX Text Control

HED files are documents created with the discontinued word processing component HighEdit and were used in many legacy applications. HighEdit is not available anymore and has been replaced with TX Text Control in many projects. This high-performance and accurate tool converts HED files to RTF, DOC, DOCX, PDF and TX Text Control format.

Upgrade your Heiler HighEdit based applications

HighEdit is a legacy rich text component developed by Heiler Software back in the 1990s. It was a competing control and Heiler Software discontinued this product line. Notwithstanding, there are many documents stored in the HighEdit .HED proprietary format.

Text Control is an award-winning Visual Studio Industry Partner and leading vendor of word processing and reporting components for Microsoft development technologies. The products help thousands of developers add comprehensive word processing functionality to their Windows, web and mobile applications.

We are providing several features and services to help companies migrating from the old, unsupported product HighEdit, to the market leading component TX Text Control:

  • TX Text Control is feature compatible to HighEdit
    Developers won't lose any functionality or features by migrating to TX Text Control. It provides a feature-complete, MS Word inspired interface and programming API including support for these file types: DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML and PDF.

  • Merge field compatibility
    Additionally, all text fields of HighEdit can be handled by TX Text Control. Using TX Text Control, developers are able to use the created RTF documents from HighEdit without any cutbacks.

  • Using HighEdit HED files in TX Text Control
    As part of our porting services for migrating from another rich text control to TX Text Control, we also have the possibility to convert the Heiler HighEdit .HED documents into a modern format that is usable in TX Text Control. Even the HighEdit text fields can be imported and used by TX Text Control.

Migrate to TX Text Control and be sure that your applications will run on future Windows versions. Simply contact our engineers to learn more about your options.
