I am targeting the .NET 6.0 framework in a new WPF project and would like to use a RichTextBox control (RTB). I understand the RTB outputs its content as a FlowDocument.

Code samples showing how to work with a FlowDocument in earlier frameworks use the System.Windows.Documents namespace. Microsoft's documentation for the FlowDocument Class refers to this namespace in the definition.

I can't find a reference/Nuget package for adding this dependency in .NET 6.0. Can someone please tell me how to find/add this?

What I have tried:

Looked for code samples and in Microsoft documentation for FlowDocument Class

In my ViewModel I can now refer to the System.Windows.Documents namespace through:
using System.Windows.Documents;

and create a FlowDocument object via:
FlowDocument flowDocument = new();
