Page margins are changed after inserting document into template using C#


I have a document with mergefield, footer, header and some information (My.doc in the example)
I want to apply on it, a template (.dot or dotx) ( in the example)

there is a sample of my code:

Document dot = new Document(@"C:\temp\");
Document doc = new Document(@"C:\temp\My.doc");
DocumentBuilder builderDot = new DocumentBuilder(dot);
builderDot.InsertDocument(doc, ImportFormatMode.KeepSourceFormatting);

the result is : i have the template’s footer and header, but the margin values is not applyed (it keep the document’s margin values instead of the template’s values).

Furthermore, if the template don’t have footer and/or header, it erase the document’s footer/header.

It seems that you want to insert template document into DOC document. Please ZIP and attach your input documents along with expected output document. We will then provide you more information about your query.

If you want to attach template to document, you can use Document.AttachedTemplate property. This property gets or sets the full path of the template attached to the document.

Hi Tahir,

thanks for your response, you will find the zip with input documents, the program’s result and the expected result. (308.7 KB)
