How to add comment in a particular word

Hi Team , Actually i struggling to add a comment to particular text in existing document. can anyone help with this?
using Aspose.words python.

@karthik3366 In .NET, Java and C++ version it is possible to achieve using IReplacingCallback. Unfortunately, this feature is not yet available in Python version of Aspose.Words. The feature request is logged as WORDSNET-24685. We will keep you informed and let you know once it is resolved.

However, even if there is no elegant way to achieve this using IReplacingCallback, you can workaround this with preprocessing the document using Ragnge.replace method and then insert the comment. For example see the following code:

doc = aw.Document("C:\\Temp\\in.docx")

word = "test"

# Use Range.replace method to make each searched word a separate Run node.
opt = aw.replacing.FindReplaceOptions()
opt.use_substitutions = True
doc.range.replace(word, "$0", opt)

# Get all runs
runs = doc.get_child_nodes(aw.NodeType.RUN, True)

for r in runs :
    run = r.as_run()
    # process the runs with text that matches the searched word.
    if run.text == word:
        # Crete a comment
        comment = aw.Comment(doc, "James Bond", "007", datetime.date.today())
        comment.first_paragraph.runs.add(aw.Run(doc, "Comment text."))
        # Wrap the Run with CommentRangeStart and CommentRangeEnd
        run.parent_node.insert_before(aw.CommentRangeStart(doc, comment.id), run)
        run.parent_node.insert_after(aw.CommentRangeEnd(doc, comment.id), run)
        # Add a comment.
        run.parent_node.insert_after(comment, run)


It’s really helpful Thankyou!

Hi can you give me an update about when will be release the aspose.words python comment features…

@karthik3366 Comment feature is available in Aspose.Words for Python. What you are asking about is advanced find/replace functionality - an ability to use IReplacingCallback. Unfortunately, this feature is not yet scheduled for implementation, so currently we cannot provide you any estimates.
At the moment, you can use the workaround I have suggested in my previous answer.
