             Summary: [Simpe]Add new methods in TextDocument to suport insert a d ocument
into an open document
                 Key: ODFTOOLKIT-339
             Project: ODF Toolkit
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: simple api
    Affects Versions: 0.8.6
            Reporter: DaLi Liu
             Fix For: 0.8.6, 0.8.7

Dear all,

Do you have meet this requirement before?

Customer want to render a report from other source documents, all the target and source documents
are using the same style templates.
With ODF toolkit API, we can append the content of source documents to target document with
styles, but during document insertation the styles existing in the target and the source document
added again to the target document.
Example: Both the report master doc (= target doc) and the inserted doc (= sourcedoc) have
the identical style "MinD Standard" defined to it. After appending the source doc to the master
doc there three styles in the report master doc: the original style "MinD Standard" and two
additional styles named "MinD Standard-ala266c" and MinD Standard-af9e507". The paragraphs
from the source doc which were originally formatted with "MinD Standard" are in the master
doc now formatted with "MinD Standard-af9e507".

This is very confusing for users to see for every included source doc the multiple styles
included in the target doc.

So a propose add new methods in TextDocument to meet this requirement:
   TextDocument.insertContentFromDocumentAfter(docName, positon, isCopyStyle)
   TextDocument.insertContentFromDocumentBefore(docName, positon, isCopyStyle)

Parameters for the API are: 1. Name of the source doc to be inserted,  2. Paragraph  location
where to put the insert doc,  3. copy the style of the insert doc (Boolean: yes/no)
if isCopyStyle is yes then insert styles in source document to the master doc.
if isCopyStyle is no then don't insert styles to source document to the master doc.
