Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert content that spans across 3 pages.
builder.Writeln("Paragraph 1, Page 1.");
builder.Writeln("Paragraph 2, Page 2.");
builder.Writeln("Paragraph 3, Page 3.");

// Insert a header and a footer.
builder.Writeln("This is the header.");
builder.Writeln("This is the footer.");

// This document contains a small amount of content that takes up a few full pages worth of space.
// Set the "DoNotDisplayPageBoundaries" flag to "true" to get older versions of Microsoft Word to omit headers,
// footers, and much of the vertical whitespace when displaying our document.
// Set the "DoNotDisplayPageBoundaries" flag to "false" to get older versions of Microsoft Word
// to normally display our document.
doc.ViewOptions.DoNotDisplayPageBoundaries = doNotDisplayPageBoundaries;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "ViewOptions.DisplayPageBoundaries.doc");
