I use this:

document.Replace(find, "xxx", false, false);

find -> "${...}" is my placeholder.

What to do here ?

Hi Customer,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We are able to reproduce the mentioned issue in replacing text in Word document. On further analyzing your given input Word document, we have found that the text is preserved inside the Group Shapes and also Word document contains some Custom Shapes. DocIO does not have support for these features.

have logged this feature request in our database. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. The feature will be available in any of our upcoming releases. Please check our website periodically to know the status of the feature.

As a workaround, we have modified your given Word document without any content loss to achieve your requirement. Kindly use the modified document and let us know if it helps.
