Replacing text in Aspose.Words.Node

Hello there

I have a problem with a footer on the first page.
I need to remove a part of it (page/pageCount). My approach was to replace it using regex.
However while regex finds the part i want to replace, the node.Text is readonly and cannot be assigned.

This is how i iterate through the nodes
foreach (Node node in sec.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.FooterFirst].ChildNodes)

Is there a way to remove this specific part of the footer without removing it all?

@ImTryingOkay Page and Page Count are represented by fields, not by simple text. You can see these fields by pressing Alt+F9 in MS Word. You can use code like the following to remove them, but Note the code is an example and I assumed that there is PAGE/NUMPAGES in the first page footer:

Document doc = new Document(@"C:\Temp\in.docx");

// Get the footer.
HeaderFooter first = doc.FirstSection.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.FooterFirst];

// Page number and page count are represented using fields. it is required simply romve these fields.
// Also it is required to remove Run node between these fields, which represents slash.
foreach (Field field in first.Range.Fields)
    if (field.Start.FieldType == FieldType.FieldPage)
        // This will remove slash. An additional check can be added here.

    if (field.Start.FieldType == FieldType.FieldNumPages)


Hey Thanks :smiley:
