Bullet problems

When I have bullets in text that I output (via InsertHtml) it loses formatting. That is if I have a template document with line spacing set to 15px the text will come out as that, but after the bullets the spacing goes back to a regular spacing.

I've included the template and the output document.

Look at the first paragraphs spacing compared to the one right after the bullets.

The text I'm outputting is really simple:

Somehow the documents were not attached properly. Please reattach them.

Best regards,

Here are the docs

That is because start of the html list is treated as a beginning of the new paragraph. And all superficial formatting of a previous paragraph (other than style level formatting) is lost as a result. That is by design as html can define its own paragraph formatting and some users would rather prefer that formatting to be respected than the formatting already existing in the document at the place where html is inserted.

To work around try using the following code when inserting HTML:

// Mark the paragraph after which the HTML will be inserted.

Paragraph startingParagraph = builder.CurrentParagraph;


Paragraph paragraph = builder.CurrentParagraph;

// Iterate thorugh all paragraphs inserted by DocumentBuilder.

while (paragraph != startingParagraph)


// set the desired paragraph-level formatting for inserted html here.

paragraph.ParagraphFormat.LineSpacing = 15;

paragraph = (Paragraph)paragraph.PreviousSibling;


Please let me know if this worked for you.
