Why to Convert XPS to RTF?
XPS (XML Paper Specification) is a page description language developed by Microsoft. It is used to create documents that are independent of application software, hardware, and operating system. XPS documents are similar to PDF documents, but they are not as widely used. RTF (Rich Text Format) is a document file format used by Microsoft products such as Word and Office. It is a popular format for text documents and is supported by many other word processing applications. Converting XPS to RTF allows users to open and edit XPS documents in applications that do not support XPS.
How Aspose.Total Helps for XPS to RTF Conversion?
Aspose.Total for Android Java is a package of APIs that can be used to integrate XPS to RTF conversion feature in mobile apps. It includes two APIs: Aspose.PDF for Android via Java and Aspose.Words for Android Java. Aspose.PDF for Android via Java can be used to convert XPS files to DOC. Aspose.Words for Android Java can then be used to render the DOC file to RTF. This process allows users to open and edit XPS documents in applications that do not support XPS. Aspose.Total for Android Java is a powerful and reliable solution for integrating XPS to RTF conversion feature in mobile apps.
Convert XPS to RTF on Android via Java
Get Started with Android via Java APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load XPS file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.xps"); // save XPS as a DOC document.save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.DOC); // load DOC with an instance of Document Document outputDocument = new com.aspose.words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.RTF outputDocument.save("output.rtf", SaveFormat.RTF);
Get XPS File Information on Android via Java
Before converting XPS to RTF, you might need information about the document including author, creation date, keywords, modify date, subject, and title. This information is helpful for the decision making for the conversion process. Using the powerful Aspose.PDF for Android via Java API, you can get all of it. To get file-specific information about a XPS file, first get the DocumentInfo object using getInfo method. Once the DocumentInfo object is retrieved, you can get the values of the individual properties.
// load XPS document Document doc = new Document("template.xps"); // get document information DocumentInfo docInfo = doc.getInfo(); // show document information System.out.println("Author: " + docInfo.getAuthor()); System.out.println("Creation Date: " + docInfo.getCreationDate()); System.out.println("Keywords: " + docInfo.getKeywords()); System.out.println("Modify Date: " + docInfo.getModDate()); System.out.println("Subject: " + docInfo.getSubject()); System.out.println("Title: " + docInfo.getTitle());
Insert Endnotes in RTF Document in Android Apps
Apart from document conversion, you can also add a bunch of other features inside your Android Applications using Aspose.Words for Android via Java API. One of that feature is inserting endnotes and numbering in RTF document. If you want to insert a footnote or an endnote in a RTF document, please use DocumentBuilder.InsertFootnote method. This method inserts a footnote or endnote into the document. EndnoteOptions and FootnoteOptions classes represent numbering options for footnote and endnote.
// load document Document doc = new Document("input.DOC"); // initialize document builder DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc); // add text in it builder.write("Some text"); // insert footnote builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.ENDNOTE, "Endnote text."); // initialize endnote options EndnoteOptions option = doc.getEndnoteOptions(); // set restart rule option.setRestartRule(FootnoteNumberingRule.RESTART_PAGE); // set position option.setPosition(EndnotePosition.END_OF_SECTION); // save the document to disk. doc.save("output.rtf", SaveFormat.RTF);

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
What is RTF File Format?
The RTF (Rich Text Format) file format is a versatile and widely supported file format for storing text documents with formatting. It was developed by Microsoft in the late 1980s as a cross-platform format that could be easily exchanged between different word processing applications.
RTF files are typically saved with the .rtf file extension and can be opened and edited by various text editors and word processing software, including Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and LibreOffice. The format allows for the inclusion of various formatting elements, such as font styles, sizes, colors, paragraphs, tables, and images.
One of the key advantages of RTF is its platform independence, which means that an RTF file created on one operating system can be opened and rendered correctly on another without losing formatting. This makes it a preferred choice for document exchange and collaboration.
RTF files use a plain-text formatting syntax, which means that the files are human-readable and can be modified with a text editor if needed. However, RTF files can be quite large in size compared to other formats like plain text or Markdown, as they store formatting information explicitly.
While RTF is primarily used for text documents, it can also support the embedding of other types of files, such as images and objects, within the document. This allows for the creation of more complex and visually appealing documents.
