We are investigating your issue and will get back to you soon.


Please note that Aspose.Words requires TrueType fonts when rendering document to fixed-page formats (JPEG, PNG, PDF or XPS). You need to install fonts that are used in your document on the machine where you are converting documents to PDF. Please refer to the following articles:

How Aspose.Words Uses True Type Fonts
How to Receive Notification of Missing Fonts and Font Substitution during Rendering

Hello Tahir,

Thanks for your prompt response.

I tried all the below but with not much Luck:

  • Font was already installed on my System (dev environment), however I reinstalled it.
  • Font is embedded in the word document, along with all other fonts (even standard fonts)
  • PdfSavOptions.FontEmbeddingMode is set to EmbedAll
  • On FontSettings, set DefaultFontSubstitution to my font, and SetFontsFolders to a custom path that contains my font and C:\Windows\Fonts\
  • Implemented IWarningCallback handler as per the documentation, I get one warning :

Description = “There are known issues with “Through” text wrapping type. Wrapped content could be rendered differently.\r\n\tAt DrawingML Object 36.75x47.45, Paragraph 1, Primary Header, Section 1”

Source = Layout

WarningType = MinorFormattingLoss
