guideExport to Word - overview

CKEditor Cloud Services offers a fast and highly scalable service enabling the user to export documents to the Word format.

The HTML to DOCX converter service provides an API for converting HTML documents to Microsoft Word .docx files. The service generates a Word file and returns it to the user so they can save it in the .docx format on their disk. This allows you to easily export your content to the Microsoft Word format.

Export to Word.

The export to Word service can be used in two different ways:

  • A plugin for CKEditor 5 WYSIWYG editor, so that your end-users could generate Word documents straight in the editor. An appropriate plugin needs to be added to your editor build; this is not pre-bundled.
  • A REST service to convert HTML to Word (.docx) documents using the API, for example, allowing your application to programmatically generate .docx files from content saved in the database.

You can read more about it and see the demo on the Export to Word product page.

# Pagination feature

The complementary premium pagination feature for CKEditor 5 allows you to see where page breaks would be after the document is exported to Word. Thanks to the live preview, the user is able to fine-tune the structure of the output document when editing it. In addition to this, the pagination feature shows you the page count and allows to easily navigate between the document pages.
