Inserting Symbols in Word Document


#1

Can I insert the symbols that are available in Word (i.e. Insert->Symbol) using aspose or I have to use InsertImage() only?

I will select the type of symbol to be inserted through some option in the code and want to insert the same symbol in Word document using aspose.

This problem was discussed in the following thread:

I tried from \x2014 to \x2054 but didn’t find smbols except block circle, %, {. I want to know the character codes for the symbols outlined circle, other symbols. If there is any chart with Character codes and Symbols it will be very useful.

I tried inserting numbered/bulletted text in the document using

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ApplyNumberDefault();

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-1");

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ApplyBulletDefault();

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ListIndent();

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ListIndent();

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-1");

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-2");

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-3");

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ListOutdent();

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ListOutdent();

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ApplyNumberDefault();

DocBuilder.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber=1;

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-2");

DocBuilder.Writeln("Bullet-3");

DocBuilder.ListFormat.RemoveNumbers();

The output i am getting is

  1. Bullet-1
  • Bullet-1
  • Bullet-2
  • Bullet-3
  1. Bullet-2
  2. Bullet-3

But i want to generate the output in the below format

1. Bullet-1

  • Bullet-1
  • Bullet-2
  • Bullet-3

2. Bullet-2

3. Bullet-3

How can i do that?

To find character codes and symbols you should use Character Map program:

Start > Programs > Accessories > Character Map


#6

I dont have Character Map under any option in Start > Programs.


#7

Try Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map.

List formatting have limited support in Aspose.Words. We plan to add richer support for list formatting and styles later this year.
