    GcWord allows you to add, modify, and delete a paragraph from a Word document. It allows you to add a paragraph to the paragraph collection using Add method of the ParagraphCollection class, modify it using the Paragraphs property which accesses the paragraph collection, and delete it using the Delete method of the ContentObject class.

    Add Paragraph

    To add a paragraph to a document:

    1. Access the paragraph collection using Paragraphs property of the RangeBase class.
    2. Add a paragraph using Add method of the ParagraphCollection class.
      C#
      Copy Code
      //Add first paragraph
      doc.Body.Sections.First.GetRange().Paragraphs.Add("Hello, World!");
      
      //Add another paragraph
      doc.Body.Sections.First.GetRange().Paragraphs.Add("Grapecity Document Solution: GcWord");
      
      //Save the document

    Modify Paragraph

    1. Access the paragraph you want to modify from the paragraph collection using Paragraphs property of the RangeBase class. For example, access the first paragraph using First property of the ParagraphCollection class.

      doc.Body.Sections.First.GetRange().Paragraphs.First.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Center;
      
      //Save the document
      doc.Save("ModifyParagraph.docx");
