C#/VB.NET: Apply Emphasis Marks in Word

Wednesday, 11 May 2022 05:17 Written by support iceblue

The emphasis mark is used in Word documents to emphasize words and make them more noticeable. It is usually a dot or a circle placed above or under the emphasized words. However, manually selecting words and applying emphasis marks on them takes a lot of work. Fortunately, Spire.Doc for .NET provides a much easier way to apply emphasis marks by codes. This article will show you how to apply emphasis marks to text in Word documents using Spire.Doc for .NET.

Install Spire.Doc for .NET

To begin with, you need to add the DLL files included in the Spire.Doc for.NET package as references in your .NET project. The DLL files can be either downloaded from this link or installed via NuGet.

PM> Install-Package Spire.Doc

Apply Emphasis Mark to Specified Text

The detailed steps are as follows:

  • Create a Document instance.
  • Load the Word document from disk using Document.LoadFromFile() method.
  • Find the text you need to emphasize using Document.FindAllString() method.
  • Apply emphasis mark to the found text through CharacterFormat.EmphasisMark property.
  • Save the document to another Word file using Document.SaveToFile() method.
  • C#
  • VB.NET
using System;
using Spire.Doc;
using Spire.Doc.Documents;

namespace applyemphasismark
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //Create a Document instance
            Document document = new Document();

            //Load the Word document from disk
            document.LoadFromFile(@"D:\testp\test.docx");

            //Find text you want to emphasize
            TextSelection[] textSelections = document.FindAllString("Spire.Doc for .NET", false, true);

            //Apply emphasis mark to the found text
            foreach (TextSelection selection in textSelections)
            {
                selection.GetAsOneRange().CharacterFormat.EmphasisMark = Emphasis.Dot;
            }

            //Save the document to another Word file
            string output = "ApllyEmphasisMark.docx";
            document.SaveToFile(output, FileFormat.Docx);
        }
    }
}

Print Word on a Custom Paper Size

The table below shows a list of core classes, methods and properties utilized in this scenario.

Name Description
Document Class Represents a document model for Word.
PaperSize Class Specifies the size of a piece of paper.
PrintDocument Class Defines a reusable object that sends output to a printer, when printing from a Windows Forms application.
PrintDocument.DefaultPageSettings Property Gets or sets page settings that are used as defaults for all pages to be printed.
Document.PrintDocument Property Gets the PrintDocument object.
DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize Property Sets the custom paper size.
Document.LoadFromFile() Method Loads the sample document.
PrintDocument.Print() Method Prints the document.

The following are the steps to print Word on a custom paper size.

  • C#
  • VB.NET
using Spire.Doc;
using System.Drawing.Printing;

namespace PrintWord
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
             //Instantiate a Document object.
            Document doc = new Document();

            //Load the document
            doc.LoadFromFile(@"Sample.docx");

            //Get the PrintDocument object
            PrintDocument printDoc = doc.PrintDocument;

            //Customize the paper size
            printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize = new PaperSize("custom", 900, 800);

            //Print the document
            printDoc.Print();

        }
    }
}
Imports Spire.Doc
Imports System.Drawing.Printing

Namespace PrintWord
	Class Program
		Private Shared Sub Main(args As String())
			'Instantiate a Document object.
			Dim doc As New Document()

			'Load the document
			doc.LoadFromFile("Sample.docx")

			'Get the PrintDocument object
			Dim printDoc As PrintDocument = doc.PrintDocument

			'Customize the paper size
			printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize = New PaperSize("custom", 900, 800)

			'Print the document
			printDoc.Print()

		End Sub
	End Class
End Namespace

In the earlier tutorial, we have given a brief introduction on how to insert Textbox in Word and this article will demonstrate how to position the text vertically in a text box using Spire.Doc for .NET.

C#
using Spire.Doc;
using Spire.Doc.Documents;
using Spire.Doc.Fields;
using System;

namespace WordTextbox
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            // Instantiate document object
            Document document = new Document();

            //Add a section 
            Section section = document.AddSection();

            //Set the margin
            section.PageSetup.Margins.Left = 90;
            section.PageSetup.Margins.Right = 90;
            Paragraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();

            //Add texbox 1
            TextBox textBox1 = paragraph.AppendTextBox(section.PageSetup.Margins.Left - 20, section.PageSetup.PageSize.Height + 20);
           
            //Fix the position of textbox 
            textBox1.Format.HorizontalOrigin = HorizontalOrigin.Page;
            textBox1.Format.HorizontalPosition = 0;
            textBox1.Format.VerticalPosition = -10f;
            textBox1.Format.VerticalOrigin = VerticalOrigin.Page;

            //Set the text vertically
            textBox1.Format.TextAnchor = ShapeVerticalAlignment.Center;
            textBox1.Format.LayoutFlowAlt = TextDirection.LeftToRight;

            //Add text and set the font
            Paragraph textboxPara1 = textBox1.Body.AddParagraph();
            TextRange txtrg = textboxPara1.AppendText("Name_______Number_________Class__________");
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.FontName = "Arial";
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.FontSize = 10;
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.TextColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
            textboxPara1.Format.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;

            //Save the document
            document.SaveToFile("Result.docx");

        }
    }
}
VB.NET
Namespace WordTextbox
    
    Class Program
        
        Private Shared Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            Dim document As Document = New Document
            Dim section As Section = document.AddSection
            section.PageSetup.Margins.Left = 90
            section.PageSetup.Margins.Right = 90
            Dim paragraph As Paragraph = section.AddParagraph
            Dim textBox1 As TextBox = paragraph.AppendTextBox((section.PageSetup.Margins.Left - 20), (section.PageSetup.PageSize.Height + 20))
            textBox1.Format.HorizontalOrigin = HorizontalOrigin.Page
            textBox1.Format.HorizontalPosition = 0
            textBox1.Format.VerticalPosition = -10!
            textBox1.Format.VerticalOrigin = VerticalOrigin.Page
            textBox1.Format.TextAnchor = ShapeVerticalAlignment.Center
            textBox1.Format.LayoutFlowAlt = TextDirection.LeftToRight
            Dim textboxPara1 As Paragraph = textBox1.Body.AddParagraph
            Dim txtrg As TextRange = textboxPara1.AppendText("Name_______Number_________Class__________")
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.FontName= "Arial"
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.FontSize = 10
            txtrg.CharacterFormat.TextColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black
            textboxPara1.Format.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
            document.SaveToFile("Result.docx")
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace
