Gets or sets a value determining how DrawingML effects are rendered.

public virtual DmlEffectsRenderingMode DmlEffectsRenderingMode { get; set; }


The default value is Simplified.

This property is used when the document is exported to fixed page formats.


Shows how to configure the rendering quality of DrawingML effects in a document as we save it to PDF.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "DrawingML shape effects.docx");

// Create a "PdfSaveOptions" object that we can pass to the document's "Save" method
// to modify how that method converts the document to .PDF.
PdfSaveOptions options = new PdfSaveOptions();

// Set the "DmlEffectsRenderingMode" property to "DmlEffectsRenderingMode.None" to discard all DrawingML effects.
// Set the "DmlEffectsRenderingMode" property to "DmlEffectsRenderingMode.Simplified"
// to render a simplified version of DrawingML effects.
// Set the "DmlEffectsRenderingMode" property to "DmlEffectsRenderingMode.Fine" to
// render DrawingML effects with more accuracy and also with more processing cost.
options.DmlEffectsRenderingMode = effectsRenderingMode;

Assert.AreEqual(DmlRenderingMode.DrawingML, options.DmlRenderingMode);

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "PdfSaveOptions.DrawingMLEffects.pdf", options);
