Create New Style based on Normal Style and customize it RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on Office.Interop.Word using c#. I have a simple winform and has a button and all this button does,  place the name of the document at the footer. . 

    How can I copy the normal style and add a new style based on normal style. FOr example, the normal style default font is Times New Roman and size is 12. And I want to create a new style where font will be Arial and size will be 6.

  • Hello,

    The default font while creating new style is based on current font setting. So, if we change current font name as Arial and size as 6, the created style will have the same setting.

    So the code could be.

    oWord.Selection.Font.Name = "Arial";
                oWord.Selection.Font.Size = 6;

    By the way, what's the state of below threads? Please feel free to let us know if you have any updates for them.
