public virtual bool DecrementStartPosition()


Type Description

true if the text range has been changed; otherwise, false.


You can combine several incrementing and decrementing methods to resize and move the text frame in the document.

If a document start is reached, the position can not be decremented and remains the same. The method returns false. You can also use the AutoCorrectInfo.CanDecrementStart method to check for this situation.
