The exact definition of a paragraph is determined by the analyzing engines, but in general, a paragraph contains groups of lines that should reflow together.

A ParagraphNode object can contain any number of the following types of children:

The following example takes all of the LineNode objects in the ContextNode tree of an InkAnalyzer, theInkAnalyzer, and puts them in their own ParagraphNode objects.

// Take each line and make it its own paragraph
ContextNodeCollection originalParagraphs =
ContextNodeCollection lines =
foreach (ContextNode lineNode in lines)
    // Create a new paragraph
    ContextNode paragraph = lineNode.ParentNode;
    ContextNode writingRegion = paragraph.ParentNode;
    ParagraphNode newParagraph = (ParagraphNode)
    // Reparent the line
// Remove original paragraphs 
foreach (ContextNode originalParagraph in originalParagraphs)
    ContextNode originalWritingRegion = originalParagraph.ParentNode;
