Document .Net - Import Element in mode KeepSourceFormatting

Import an Element with Styles.
Mode: KeepSourceFormatting

KeepSourceFormatting means to copy all required styles to the destination document, generate unique style names if needed.

For example, a destination document contains a style "Green" (Calibri, FontSize = 20, Green, Underline).

Destination:

And a source document also contains an equal style with the same name "Green" (Calibri, FontSize = 20, Green, Underline).

Let's import a 1st paragraph from the source document.
The paragraph contains text "Shrek" marked by an equal style with the same name "Green" (Calibri, FontSize = 20, Green, Underline).
The style "Green" will be imported and renamed to "Green1".

Source:

(SourceStyles.docx)

After the importing, all imported elements will be remapped to style "Green1".:
