Shows how to check whether a paragraph is a move revision.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Revisions.docx");

// This document contains "Move" revisions, which appear when we highlight text with the cursor,
// and then drag it to move it to another location
// while tracking revisions in Microsoft Word via "Review" -> "Track changes".
Assert.AreEqual(6, doc.Revisions.Count(r => r.RevisionType == RevisionType.Moving));

ParagraphCollection paragraphs = doc.FirstSection.Body.Paragraphs;

// Move revisions consist of pairs of "Move from", and "Move to" revisions. 
// These revisions are potential changes to the document that we can either accept or reject.
// Before we accept/reject a move revision, the document
// must keep track of both the departure and arrival destinations of the text.
// The second and the fourth paragraph define one such revision, and thus both have the same contents.
Assert.AreEqual(paragraphs[1].GetText(), paragraphs[3].GetText());

// The "Move from" revision is the paragraph where we dragged the text from.
// If we accept the revision, this paragraph will disappear,
// and the other will remain and no longer be a revision.

// The "Move to" revision is the paragraph where we dragged the text to.
// If we reject the revision, this paragraph instead will disappear, and the other will remain.
