I am seeking a way to op[en an existing Word Template in a Windows Form as part of an application that involves editing multiple documents and converting them to a single PDF. I wouldn't think this would be too much to ask of Microsoft. Is this possible?

Hi Michael,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support,

Regarding viewing/editing word documents:
The WPF SfRichTextBoxAdv control allows you to view, edit, and print rich text contents, and also import and export the Html, Xaml, Text files and Word documents (".doc", ".docx", ".rtf"). You can host the Syncfusion SfRichTextBoxAdv WPF control to your existing Windows Forms application using ElementHost in Windows Forms.

WPF SfRichTextBoxAdv UG link :

Please do refer the below MSDN reference link for more information about hosting a WPF control in Windows Forms application.

Regarding converting the word documents into pdf :
Our DocIO library allows you to convert a Word document into PDF with a few lines of code. For more information regarding word document to pdf conversation refer the below link:

Using our SfRichTextBoxAdv and DocIO library you can view and edit the word documents and export to pdf file. We have prepared a sample to demonstrate the same. Please find the sample from following link.

Try the running sample and let us know if this helps you.
