Examples

Shows how to create a drop cap.

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

// Insert one paragraph with a large letter that the text in the second and third paragraphs begins with.
builder.Font.Size = 54;
builder.Writeln("L");

builder.Font.Size = 18;
builder.Writeln("orem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, " +
                "sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. ");
builder.Writeln("Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation " +
                "ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.");

// Currently, the second and third paragraphs will appear underneath the first.
// We can convert the first paragraph as a drop cap for the other paragraphs via its "ParagraphFormat" object.
// Set the "DropCapPosition" property to "DropCapPosition.Margin" to place the drop cap
// outside the left-hand side page margin if our text is left-to-right.
// Set the "DropCapPosition" property to "DropCapPosition.Normal" to place the drop cap within the page margins
// and to wrap the rest of the text around it.
// "DropCapPosition.None" is the default state for all paragraphs.
ParagraphFormat format = doc.FirstSection.Body.FirstParagraph.ParagraphFormat;
format.DropCapPosition = dropCapPosition;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "ParagraphFormat.DropCap.docx");
