Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 19.10. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in Aspose.Words which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as regression and modifies the existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.

Implemented DocumentDirection option that allows specifying the direction to flow the text in a document

Related issue: WORDSNET-19067.

The new public enumeration was added:

/// <summary>
/// Allows to specify the direction to flow the text in a document.
/// </summary>
public enum DocumentDirection

Added new public option into TxtLoadOptions class:

/// <summary>
/// Gets or sets a document direction.
/// The default value is <see cref="Aspose.Words.DocumentDirection.LeftToRight"/>. 
/// </summary>
public DocumentDirection DocumentDirection

Use Case. Explains how to detect document direction automatically:

TxtLoadOptions loadOptions = new TxtLoadOptions();
loadOptions.DocumentDirection = DocumentDirection.Auto;
Document doc = new Document("SomeRtlText.txt", loadOptions);
Paragraph paragraph = doc.FirstSection.Body.FirstParagraph;

Issue: WORDSNET-18920

The “Inserting Hyperlinks Dynamically” section of the engine’s documentation was updated to describe the change.
