Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert MD to DOTM in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert MD file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to DOTM.

C++ API to Render MD to DOTM

  1. Open MD file using Document class reference
  2. Convert MD to DOC by using Save member function
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class reference of Aspose.Words API
  4. Save the document to DOTM format using Save member function

Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs

Install from command line as nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with Install-Package Aspose.Total.Cpp.

Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

// load MD file with an instance of Document class reference
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.md");
// save MD as a DOC 
doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); 
// load DOC with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc");
// save document as Dotm
wordDoc->Save(u"output.Dotm");  

Change Password of MD Document via C++

In the process of rendering MD to DOTM, you can open a password protected MD and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MD file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.

// load an existing MD Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.md", L"owner");
// change password of MD Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document
doc->Save(L"output.Doc");

Restrict DOTM File Editing via C++

You can also restrict DOTM file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.

// load Doc with an instance of Document
auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc");
// document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");
// save the protected document.
doc->Save(u"Protected.Dotm");

What is MD File Format?

MD, or Markdown, is a lightweight markup language commonly used for formatting plain text documents. It was created by John Gruber in 2004 with the goal of allowing writers to focus on content without the distractions of complex formatting. Markdown uses simple and intuitive syntax that can be easily converted into HTML or other document formats.

In Markdown, you can apply formatting to text by using a combination of special characters and plain text. For example, you can use asterisks or underscores to create italic or bold text, hashtags to create headings, and hyphens or asterisks to create lists. Markdown also supports adding links, images, code snippets, and tables.

One of the advantages of Markdown is its readability in its raw form, as it closely resembles plain text. It can be written in any text editor and easily converted into HTML or other formats using various tools and converters. Markdown files have the .md or .markdown file extension.

Markdown is widely used for writing documentation, creating blog posts, and even in version control systems like Git. Its simplicity and versatility have made it a popular choice among writers, developers, and content creators for creating structured and well-formatted documents with minimal effort.

What is DOTM File Format?

The DOTM file format is closely associated with Microsoft Word and is used for storing documents that contain macros. Similar to the standard DOCX format, DOTM files are based on the Open XML format, but with the added capability of incorporating VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) macros. These macros are small programs that automate tasks within Word documents, allowing for enhanced functionality and customization.

DOTM files serve as templates in Microsoft Word, providing a pre-defined structure, formatting, and macros that can be utilized in creating new documents. When a DOTM template is used, the macros within the template can be executed to perform specific actions, such as automating repetitive tasks or adding dynamic content.

To work with a DOTM file, you need a word processing program that supports the Open XML format and macro execution, such as Microsoft Word or other compatible software. Opening a DOTM file will create a new document based on the template, including its pre-defined macros. Users can then utilize or modify the macros as needed for their specific requirements.

It’s important to exercise caution when working with DOTM files, as macros can potentially contain malicious code. To ensure document security, it is recommended to only open DOTM files from trusted sources and employ proper antivirus measures.

The DOTM file format provides an effective means of creating and utilizing document templates with embedded macros, enhancing productivity and customization in Microsoft Word. By leveraging the power of macros, users can automate tasks, streamline workflows, and tailor their documents to meet specific needs.L format and can be opened by Word and other word processing applications.
