It is not possible using current API. We plan to significantly improve list formatting API in the near future.

Hi,

I just found there is a NumberStyle Enumeration which according to the documentation is used to Specify the number style for a list, footnotes and endnotes, page numbers. Can we not use this to extract the info i require..

NumberStyle enumeration is currently used to specify page numbering style only.

Hi Miklovan,

We have been developing a word document parser using the Aspose.Words and have moved ahead in the process of acquiring the software licenses for the same. Now at this point of time we are badly in need of the Functionality (to differentiate the numbered and bulleted List, while reading a word document). please do suggest in which future release of Aspose can we expect this functionality

Next version of Aspose.Words to be released in just 2-3 days will have a rich public API for dealing with list formatting. You will be able to detect or set evertying about list formatting.
