While the SubDocument exposes the basic functionality of the document (formatting, text operations), the Document interface is responsible for more specific operations. Such a differentiation allows for proper handling of actions performed in the header/footer sections of the document.

The Document class exposes several properties and methods that allow you to specify units of measurement (Document.Unit), access its contents (Document.Sections and SubDocument.Paragraphs), and programmatically perform the most popular edit actions (Document.Copy, Document.Paste, Document.Cut, SubDocument.Delete, SubDocument.InsertText), as well as export and import its RTF contents (Document.SaveDocument and Document.LoadDocument).
