Examples

Shows how to format a run of text using its font property.

Document doc = new Document();
Run run = new Run(doc, "Hello world!");

Aspose.Words.Font font = run.Font;
font.Name = "Courier New";
font.Size = 36;
font.HighlightColor = Color.Yellow;

doc.FirstSection.Body.FirstParagraph.AppendChild(run);
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Font.CreateFormattedRun.docx");

builder.Font.Border.LineStyle = LineStyle.DashDotStroker;

builder.Write("Text surrounded by green border.");
