Thanks for your inquiry. We suggest you please read following articles.
Working with Bookmarks
Moving the Cursor

In your case, we suggest you following solution.

  1. Get the paragraph’s collection using Document.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, true).

  2. Iterate over this collection and check if paragraph’s text is started with number. You can check it using following code snippet.

    String digit = para.ToString(SaveFormat.Text).Trim().Substring(0, 1);
    bool isDigit = digit.Any(c => char.IsDigit©);

  3. Move the cursor to the paragraph and insert the StartBookmark node using DocumentBuilder.StartBookmark method.

  4. Move the cursor to the next paragraph that is started with number and insert the EndBookmark node using DocumentBuilder.EndBookmark method.

Hope this helps you.
