Shows how to export shapes to files in the local file system using a shape renderer.
// Open a document that contains shapes and get its shape collection
Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Various shapes.docx");
List<Shape> shapes = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Shape, true).Cast<Shape>().ToList();
Assert.AreEqual(7, shapes.Count);

// There are 7 shapes in the document, with one group shape with 2 child shapes
// The child shapes will be rendered but their parent group shape will be skipped, so we will see 6 output files
