Document Editor supports server-side export of Syncfusion Document Text (.SFDT) to Doc, DOCX, RTF, Txt, WordML, Html formats using server-side helper Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor available in ASP.NET Core & ASP.NET MVC platform in the below NuGet’s.

Please refer the following code example.

  //API controller for the conversion.
  [HttpPost]
  public void ExportSFDT([FromBody]SaveParameter data)
  {
        //Export the document in specified format.
        Stream document = WordDocument.Save(data.content, FormatType.Docx);
        FileStream file = new FileStream("sample.docx", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.ReadWrite);
        document.CopyTo(file);
        file.Close();
        document.Close();
  }

  public class SaveParameter
  {
      public string content { get; set; }
  }

Please refer the client side example to serialize the sfdt and send to the server.
