Is there a markup for making styling text (making italics) in Aspose.Words?

I’ve got a program which is inserting some text into a Word document. The text comes from the code, so it’s plain ascii text. It’s inserted into the Word document using a objWord.Range.Replace method. I can’t call any additional methods or access the word doc object’s properties without refactoring code significantly, so what I’m looking for is something equivalent to objWord.Range.Replace(“string to find”,“replacement string”), but where the tag is instead something that MS Word will render. I suppose Word uses binary weirdness to do markup, so I don’t know if this is possible. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks for your request. I think that you should use ReplaceEvaluetor to achieve this. For example see the following code.

public void Test091()
    Document doc = new Document(@"Test091\in.doc");
    Regex regex = new Regex("string to find");
    // This is needed because search pattern can be represented as several runs
    // after replacing it will be represented as one run
    doc.Range.Replace(regex, "string to find");
    doc.Range.Replace(regex, new ReplaceEvaluator(ReplaceEvaluator091), false);
private ReplaceAction ReplaceEvaluator091(object sender, ReplaceEvaluatorArgs e)
    // Get MatchNode
    Run firstRun = (Run)e.MatchNode;
    // Create Run
    Run secontRun = new Run(e.MatchNode.Document, string.Empty);
    // Get index of match value
    int index = firstRun.Text.IndexOf(e.Match.Value);
    if (index > 0)
        // Split text in match node
        secontRun.Text = firstRun.Text.Substring(0, index);
        firstRun.Text = firstRun.Text.Substring(index + e.Match.Value.Length);
        firstRun.Text = firstRun.Text.Replace(e.Match.Value, "");
    firstRun.ParentParagraph.InsertBefore(secontRun, firstRun);
    DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(e.MatchNode.Document);
    // Move to first run
    // Insert html
    builder.InsertHtml("replacement *string*");
    return ReplaceAction.Skip;

I hope this could help you.
Best regards.
