Interleaf's family of document management programs support import and
export of Rich Text Format (RTF), which all versions of Microsoft Word can
both read and write.
• Interleaf WorldView uses component application Interleaf WorldView
Press to import text from RTF.
• Interleaf 6 for Windows and Interleaf 6 for Motif import and export
RTF, and the Interleaf 6 Active Link Tools component application
• English, European, and Japanese language versions of Interleaf 5 for
DOS each import RTF.
Interleaf applications currently cannot read an RTF file generated by Word
6.x or later. However, they can read RTF generated by any earlier version
According to Interleaf Technical Support, an updated filter that allows
WorldView and Interleaf 6 to import Word 6.0 for Windows RTF as well as
WMF and PICT graphics in an RTF file was scheduled for availability in July, 1994. This release can read a Word 6.0 RTF file but does not retain any formatting features new to Word 6.0. An additional release scheduled for later in 1994 added support for retention of Word 6.0 formatting features.
An updated release to allow Interleaf 5 for DOS to read Word 6.0 RTF was
also scheduled for Fall, 1994.
The Interleaf family of products build document management systems that:
• Manage information developed by word processors, graphic packages,
spreadsheets, database managers, and other applications.
• Assemble complex WYSIWYG and multimedia documents automatically and
dynamically from data generated from various sources across a network.
• Create and deliver on-line WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get)
documents, formatted for on-screen readability, with tools for finding
Components of Interleaf's family of products include:
According to Interleaf, WorldView allows organizations to distribute
online versions of documents developed with a variety of word processor or
desktop publishing software. It incorporates information retrieval
techniques such as hyperlinks and full-text retrieval so that users can
locate information in a large document set.
WorldView uses the WorldView Press document production toolkit application
to import RTF documents, compress them, add hyperlinks, and create a full-
text index. RTF documents are then processed into a collection of
read-only files ready to be viewed with the WorldViewer.
Interleaf 6 assembles and automatically lays out what may be extremely
long and complex documents. The contents may come from dynamic links to RTF
data generated by Word.
Interleaf 6 uses the Interleaf 6 Active Link Tool component application to
create dynamic (live) links to data in Word RTF documents.
