Hi, My existing docx has the following format

1. First paragraph

2. Second paragraph

3. Third...

My questions are:

- Is there any way that I can insert a pagebreak between these paragraphes?

- Can searchAndReplace function insert a pagebreak?

- My last question is regarding parsing an existing docx ( I wonder if there is any instruction on how to edit the docx after parsing it.

Thank you!

You can use the addBreak method to add line, page or column breaks. Please check this example:

To do a pagebreak in a template you need to use the page_break_before property with replaceTemplateVariableByHTML.

About parsing a document, you get the full content using the read readDOCX method. But you can your own template in the constructor.
