This activity pack has now been upgraded and is fully compatible with the C# Studio feature. For more information about C# support, see About Automation Projects.

A new activity is available, Save Word File As saves a Word file added to the project as a different file. You can specify the file name and the Word file type to save as.

A new property, Replace all, has been added to the Replace Text in Document activity, enabling you to replace all of the occurrences of the specified string, not just the first one.

Reading bullet lists with the Read Text activity is now supported with the Word activities pack.

The amount of packages you can find on UiPath activity feeds is humongous, and it grows by each passing day. This can prove to be a nuisance when searching for a package with a more common name, for example. We felt your pain and decided to do something about this. From now on, all UiPath official activity packs can be easily filtered in the Package Manager so you’ll be able to reach your favorite package in no time!

V1.2.6855.25422

Release Date: 8 October 2018

New Features and Improvements

This release rounds off the edges of the Word Activities Package by adding two new activities:

  • Replace Picture - Identifies all the occurrences of a given picture according to its Alt Text in a Word document and replaces them with another specified image.
  • Insert DataTable - Inserts a table generated from a DataTable variable in a Word document. The table is created at a position relative to a specified text or bookmark.

Also, the Add Image activity has been renamed to Add Picture, for the sake of consistency.

The moment is finally here - the entire UiPath Platform has been localized, so that you can have a truly immersive experience, from install to design and execution. Now, besides English, you can access everything, including our online documentation, in Japanese.
