Word Documents in the DOCX format are essentially a package that consists of XML and image files and is compressed to a ZIP archive. By default NOV rich text view uses medium compression level when creating a Word DOCX package. The medium compression level is a nice compromise between speed and compression ratio. If you want to change the compression level of a DOCX package, you should pass an NDocxSaveSettings instance with the proper value set to its CompressionLevel to the Save method.

Saving an Electronic Publication with a different compression level
Copy Code
NDocxSaveSettings saveSettings = new NDocxSaveSettings();
saveSettings.CompressionLevel = ENCompressionLevel.BestCompression;
m_RichTextView.SaveToFile(@"C:\MyDocument.docx", new NDocxTextFormat(), saveSettings);
