    // Breaking all processes in all indexes in repository
    repository.Break();

    You can also cancel the operation using Cancellation object. The following code snippet breaks the updating operation with Cancellation object:

    
    string documentsFolder = "c:\\MyDocuments\\";
    IndexRepository repository = new IndexRepository();
    Index index = repository.Create();
    index.AddToIndex(documentsFolder);
       
    Cancellation cnc = new Cancellation();
       
    // Updating all indexes in repository
    repository.UpdateAsync(cnc);
       
    // Canceling all operations in index repository
    cnc.Cancel();

    We are pleased to announce the release of version 18.8 of GroupDocs.Parser for .NET. In this version, we have extended the support of text analysis API for spreadsheets, presentations and text documents. Furthermore, the latest version allows providing a password for protected documents on-demand. We’d recommend you to use the latest version of the API and share your feedback.

    Features Introduced

    Text Analysis API

    GroupDocs.Parser allows extracting text areas from the pages of a document. This feature may help you getting data for text analysis. DocumentContent abstract class provides API to extract text areas from document pages. This feature has been extended for spreadsheets, presentations and text documents in the current version of the API.

    The following code sample shows how to get text areas from a text document.

    // Create a text extractor
    WordsTextExtractor extractor = new WordsTextExtractor("invoice.docx");
      
    // Create search options
    TextAreaSearchOptions searchOptions = new TextAreaSearchOptions();
    // Set a regular expression to search 'Invoice # XXX' text
    searchOptions.Expression = "\\s?INVOICE\\s?#\\s?[0-9]+";
    // Limit the search with a rectangle
    searchOptions.Rectangle = new GroupDocs.Parser.Rectangle(10, 10, 300, 150);
     
    // Get text areas
    IList< textarea > texts = extractor.DocumentContent.GetTextAreas(0, searchOptions);
                 
    // Iterate over a list
    foreach(TextArea area in texts)
    {
        // Print a text
        Console.WriteLine(area.Text);
    }

    For more details on this feature, please visit this documentation article.

    Requesting the Password for Protected Documents

    We have two ways to provide a password for the protected documents. When the password is known, Password property of LoadOptions class is used. If it is not known whether it is protected or not before opening the document, PasswordProvider property of LoadOptions class is used. This feature allows providing a password for protected documents on-demand. IPasswordProvider interface is used for this purpose. For more details on this feature, please visit this documentation article.

    Skip unreadable characters during watermark search using GroupDocs.Watermark for .NET 18.8

    GroupDocs Watermark for .NETWe are delighted to announce the release of version 18.8 of GroupDocs.Watermark for .NET. The latest version allows skipping unreadable characters during text watermark search. Furthermore, we have also added a new feature to strengthen protection of text watermark in presentation documents. Please continue to read more about the new features, enhancements and bug fixes added in version 18.8.

    Features Introduced

    Skipping Unreadable Characters During Text Watermark Search

    This feature allows finding text watermark even if it contains unreadable characters between the letters. The following code sample shows how to skip unreadable characters when searching for the watermark.

    string inputFileName = @"d:\input.pptx";
      
    using (SlidesDocument document = Document.Load(inputFileName))
    {
        string watermarkText = "Company name";
        TextSearchCriteria criterion = new TextSearchCriteria(watermarkText);
      
        // Enabling skipping of unreadable characters
        criterion.SkipUnreadableCharacters = true;
      
        PossibleWatermarkCollection result = document.FindWatermarks(criterion);
    }

    For more details on this feature, please visit this documentation article.

    Protecting Text Watermark in Presentation Documents

    This feature allows strengthening the protection of text watermark. Using unreadable characters in the watermark text forbids its modification using Find and Replace dialog. The following code sample shows how to include unreadable characters in watermark text.

    string inputFileName = @"d:\input.pptx";
    string outputFileName = @"d:\output.pptx";
      
    using (SlidesDocument document = Document.Load(inputFileName))
    {
        TextWatermark watermark = new TextWatermark("Watermark text", new Font("Arial", 19));
        
        // Include unreadable characters
        SlidesShapeSettings settings = new SlidesShapeSettings();
        settings.IsLocked = true;
        settings.ProtectWithUnreadableCharacters = true;
      
        // Add wattermark
        document.AddWatermark(watermark, settings);
      
        // Save document
        document.Save(outputFileName);
    }

    For more details on this feature, please visit this documentation article.

    string inputFileName = @"G:\Input.xlsx";
    string outputFileName = @"G:\Output.xlsx";
       
    using (CellsDocument document = Document.Load(inputFileName))
    {
        var shapes = document.Worksheets[0].Shapes;
        // check if shape is SmartArt or CustomXml
        for (int i = shapes.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--)
        {
            CellsShape shape = shapes[i];
            if (shape.MsoDrawingType == CellsMsoDrawingType.SmartArt ||
                shape.MsoDrawingType == CellsMsoDrawingType.CustomXml)
            {
                shapes.RemoveAt(i);
            }
