Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 17.11. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in Aspose.Words which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as a regression and modifies existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.

The "Setting Text Background Color Dynamically" section of the engine's documentation was renamed to "Setting Background Color Dynamically" and updated to describe the change.

Related issue WORDSNET-14771.

The following constant is added into the MsWordVersion enumeration type.
