Shows how to resolve duplicate styles while inserting documents.

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

Style myStyle = builder.Document.Styles.Add(StyleType.Paragraph, "MyStyle");
myStyle.Font.Size = 14;
myStyle.Font.Name = "Courier New";
myStyle.Font.Color = Color.Blue;

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleName = myStyle.Name;
builder.Writeln("Hello world!");

// Clone the document and edit the clone's "MyStyle" style, so it is a different color than that of the original.
// If we insert the clone into the original document, the two styles with the same name will cause a clash.
Document srcDoc = dstDoc.Clone();
srcDoc.Styles["MyStyle"].Font.Color = Color.Red;

// When we enable SmartStyleBehavior and use the KeepSourceFormatting import format mode,
// Aspose.Words will resolve style clashes by converting source document styles.
// with the same names as destination styles into direct paragraph attributes.
ImportFormatOptions options = new ImportFormatOptions();
options.SmartStyleBehavior = true;

builder.InsertDocument(srcDoc, ImportFormatMode.KeepSourceFormatting, options);

dstDoc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "DocumentBuilder.SmartStyleBehavior.docx");
