Attempting to modify the document through this property or an EditPoint Object fails because the entire document's region is read-only. You can only modify the document through members on CommandWindow Object


Sub TextDocumentExample()
   ' This generates a text document listing all available command names.
   Dim Cmd As Command
   Dim Doc As Document
   Dim TxtDoc As TextDocument
   DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile ("General\Text File")
   Doc = ActiveDocument
   TxtDoc = Doc.Object("TextDocument")
   For Each Cmd In DTE.Commands
   If (Cmd.Name <> "") Then
     TxtDoc.Selection.Text = Cmd.Name & vbLF
   End If
End Sub
