  • Fix #78: feature: add_table() sets cell widths
  • Add #106: feature: Table.direction (i.e. right-to-left)
  • Add #102: feature: add CT_Row.trPr

0.8.4 (2015-02-20)

0.8.2 (2015-02-16)

  • Fix #94: picture prints at wrong size when scaled

  • Extract docx.document.Document object from DocumentPart

    Refactor docx.Document from an object into a factory function for new docx.document.Document object. Extract methods from prior docx.Document and docx.parts.document.DocumentPart to form the new API class and retire docx.Document class.

  • Migrate Document.numbering_part to DocumentPart.numbering_part. The numbering_part property is not part of the published API and is an interim internal feature to be replaced in a future release, perhaps with something like Document.numbering_definitions. In the meantime, it can now be accessed using Document.part.numbering_part.

  • Add Font object, accessible on Run.font, providing character-level formatting including:
    • typeface (e.g. ‘Arial’)

The following issues were retired:
