Get all comments from a word doc

i am trying to get all comments out of the document and iterate trough the top items to fetch the replies to each top element

i am using this code , but it will not return all the comments in the document

Document doc = new Document(file);
var result = new List();
NodeCollection comments = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Comment, true);
// Look through all comments and gather information about them.
foreach (Comment comment in comments.Where(c => ((Comment)c).Ancestor == null))
result.Add(ConvertComment(file,comment)); //fetches the replies on this comment and construct 1 element.

what am i missing?


The Comment.Replies property returns a collection of Comment objects that are immediate children of the specified comment. Please refer to the following article.
How to Read Comment’s Reply

i know, and i have read the article… But in my case i don’t get all the comments. And the command doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Comment, true); should not return only all direct children but also all deeply nested comments.

but this command doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Comment, true); doesn’t return all comments.
