  • Hi Rony,

    As far as I know, there is no such method in JavaScript API for Office. It is different with Office object model. We can read and set the data from selection or binding object in apps for Office.

    You can get more detail about apps for Office from link below:

    Overview of apps for Office

    I suggest you creating add-in for Word application. You can use Document.Content.Delete  or Document.Content.Select to delete/select all text in document.
