Thank you both for the hints.

I looked at RTF-Qt. It seems that there is no documentation for it, but it might have everything I need.
Calligra also uses RTF-Qt.

I will try it with that.

Hi Lukas,

Depending on how complex your needs are you could consider using the qt-rtf library (https://launchpad.net/rtf-qt), or maybe even embed something like calligra words (http://www.calligra.org).
