Yes, you can use a document as a template without any formatting. Please note that when you copy nodes from one document to another, this option specifies how formatting is resolved when both documents have a style with the same name, but different formatting.
The formatting is resolved as follows:
- Built-in styles are matched using their locale independent style
identifier. User defined styles are matched using case-sensitive
- If a matching style is not found in the destination document, the
style (and all styles referenced by it) are copied into the
destination document and the imported nodes are updated to reference
the new style.
- If a matching style already exists in the destination document, what
happens depends on the importFormatMode parameter passed to
Document.ImportNode as described below.
When using the UseDestinationStyles option, if a matching style already exists in the destination document, the style is not copied and the imported nodes are updated to reference the existing style.
So, in your case, I suggest you please use UseDestinationStyles option while inserting one document into another.
If you still face any issue, please ZIP and attach your input, output and expected output documents. We will then provide you more information about your query along with code example.
