Hi Vuong,

Thanks for your inquiry.
You can use following code snippet to remove SDTs from your document.

private void RemoveSdt(Document doc)<o:p></o:p>


// Get collection of SDT from the document<o:p></o:p>

NodeCollection nodes = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.StructuredDocumentTag, true, true);<o:p></o:p>

// Loop while there is SDT in the document<o:p></o:p>

while (nodes.Count > 0)<o:p></o:p>


StructuredDocumentTag sdt = (StructuredDocumentTag)nodes[0];<o:p></o:p>

// Get parent node of SDT.<o:p></o:p>

// We should move all content from SDT to its parent to preserve documents content.<o:p></o:p>

CompositeNode parent = sdt.ParentNode;<o:p></o:p>

// Loop throuht all nodes inside SDT and move its convent to parent node<o:p></o:p>

while (sdt.HasChildNodes) parent.InsertBefore(sdt.FirstChild, sdt);<o:p></o:p>

//Remove SDT.<o:p></o:p>

Please see the code below to remove all content controls from a document.

RemoveSelfOnly() removes the content in some instances. Not sure of the pattern.
