Ink Annotations


How can I detect the ink annotations that are created on the document using the Ink annotation feature from MS Word. (See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Draw-and-write-with-ink-in-Office-6d76c674-7f4b-414d-b67f-b3ffef6ccf53).

We have a requirement that documents containing such ink annotations can not be accepted for processing.

Many thanks for your support

I’m using Words-Java 17.6.



Thanks for your inquriy. Please note in MS Word Ink Annotation is a simple shape with a name “Ink + {ID}”. So you can find these shapes using the following simple code. Hopefully it will help you to accomplish the task.

// Get collection of shapes
 NodeCollection<Shape> shapes = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.SHAPE, true);
 // Loop through all shapes
 for (Shape shape : shapes)
           // do something

Best Regards,

Many thanks for the explanation. It is the same approach as for watermarks,
Many thanks again.
