Does DocumentBuilder.InsertHtml respect the HangingIndent setting?

Hi,


Does DocumentBuilder.InsertHtml respect the HangingIndent setting?

If not, is there a way to indent the content that is inserted with DocumentBuilder.InsertHtml?

Thanks.
Hi Joseph,

Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, DocumentBuilder.InsertHtml does respect the hanging indent setting. Please check the following code example and attached input and output documents.

Moreover, the ParagraphFormat.FirstLineIndent property is used to get or set the value (in points) for a first line or hanging indent. Please use a positive value to set a first-line indent, and use a negative value to set a hanging indent.

If you face any issue, please share your input HTML and expected output document here for our reference. We will then provide you more information about your query along with code.

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.InsertHtml(File.ReadAllText(MyDir + "input.html"));

doc.Save(MyDir + "Out.docx");

Hi,


I tried inserting the following HTML, the text respects the hanging indents but the table does not.
