Immediate changes to open Word document through add-in


I am making a Word add-in which would enable users to, for example, add a header or a footer to the open document. Is this possible through ASPOSE without having to close and reopen the document? Any tips would be much appreciated, as I am just getting to know the API.


Hi Grace,

Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not provide this functionality. You can not load an opened Word document into Aspose.Words DOM and modify it.
