New Mail Merge Cleanup Options in Aspose.Words for .NET and Java

In Aspose.Words 10.8, released a few days ago, we introduced some new options that allow removing various items from the document while a mail merge is performed. Until this release two properties controlled whether empty paragraphs and regions were removed – MailMerge.RemoveEmptyParagraphs and MailMerge.RemoveEmptyRegions, respectively. These properties are still there, but have been marked obsolete, so there is a new way to instruct the mail merge engine how to perform a cleanup. We have introduced a MailMergeCleanupOptions enumeration whose members… Continue Reading

Field evaluation and list numbering improved in Aspose.Words for .NET 9.4

I am glad to share that we have improved the evaluation of Microsoft Word fields when the document is rendered. There is a number of fields recalculated during rendering, such as PAGE, NUMPAGES, SECTIONPAGES and so on. Now imagine that you need to display, for example, different text on the last page of document. The following condition can be used: { IF {PAGE} = {NUMPAGES} “This is the last page” “See next page” }   Until the 9.4 release the… Continue Reading

Aspose.Words for .NET provides a comprehensive support for Microsoft Word lists. You can access a number of list properties, such as list levels, numbering format, and many others. Literally, you can access every list feature Microsoft Word’s UI offers. However, until recently, you could not get the exact value of list label for each list item (paragraph) in the document.
