Allow to specify version of PDF to 1.3 using .NET

On the statement:

doc.Save("c:\results\FinishedDocument.PDF", SaveFormat.Pdf);

is there a way to specify that the output should be PDF version 1.3. Aspose.Words is creating a version 1.5 document which is unreadable by other programs we are using to manipulate the resulting PDF file.

We apologize for your inconvenience.

Thanks for your inquiry. I’m afraid the feature ( WORDSNET-6765 ), you have requested here, has now been postponed till a later date. We will inform you as soon as there are any further developments. Sorry for the inconvenience.
In the mean time, while you’re waiting for the fix, you can use Aspose.Pdf component to be able to perform this conversion. Please see the following code snippet:

// open document
Document pdfDocument = new Document("d:/pdftest/test2.pdf");
// create conversion log file
pdfDocument.Convert("D:/pdftest/ConversionLog.txt", PdfFormat.v_1_3, ConvertErrorAction.Delete);
// save the updated document

It is to inform you that we have closed the issue (WORDSNET-6765) with “Won’t Fix” resolution.
