public void Cleanup()


Shows how to remove unused custom styles from a document.
Document doc = new Document();

doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.List, "MyListStyle1");
doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.List, "MyListStyle2");
doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.Character, "MyParagraphStyle1");
doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.Character, "MyParagraphStyle2");

// Combined with the built-in styles, the document now has eight styles.
// A custom style counts as "used" while applied to some part of the document,
// which means that the four styles we added are currently unused.
Assert.AreEqual(8, doc.Styles.Count);

// Apply a custom character style, and then a custom list style. Doing so will mark the styles as "used".
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
builder.Font.Style = doc.Styles["MyParagraphStyle1"];
builder.Writeln("Hello world!");

Aspose.Words.Lists.List list = doc.Lists.Add(doc.Styles["MyListStyle1"]);
builder.ListFormat.List = list;
builder.Writeln("Item 1");
builder.Writeln("Item 2");


Assert.AreEqual(6, doc.Styles.Count);

// Removing every node that a custom style is applied to marks it as "unused" again.
// Run the Cleanup method again to remove them.

Assert.AreEqual(4, doc.Styles.Count);
