Are there any filesize limitations for Aspose.Word- Aspose.Pdf and Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java

Are there any filesize limitations for Aspose.Word, Aspose.Pdf and Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java. During Evaluation, we have seen some limitation in converting a word (doc, docx) file (between 2.5MB and 3MB) to pdf. The conversion succeeded, but showed only one page in pdf with a evaluation message that the file has been truncated.

I just wanted to make sure this will go away with a license…let me know.

Hi Umesh,

I am representative of Aspose.Words team.

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that in evaluation mode there are some limitations applied. E.g Aspose.Words injects an evaluation watermark at the top of the document. The document’s content are truncated after a certain number of paragraphs during import or export.

To avoid this you can request a free 30-day trial license which removes these evaluation restrictions. You can request this from here:

The license can be loaded from a file, stream or an embedded resource. Aspose.Words will try to find the license in the following locations:

  1. Explicit path.
  2. The folder that contains the Aspose.Words.dll.
  3. The folder that contains the assembly that called Aspose.Words.dll.
  4. The folder that contains the entry assembly (your .exe).
  5. An embedded resource in the assembly that is called Aspose.Words.dll.

Please read following documentation link for your kind reference.

You can also set the license file by stream object. Please check details from following documentation links.

Please feel free to ask if you have any question about Aspose.Words, we will be happy to help you.

Hi Umesh,

Thanks for your interest in our products.

I am a representative from Aspose.Pdf and Aspose.Pdf.Kit team. When using Aspose.Pdf for Java/.NET in evaluation mode, it provides same set of features as offered in licensed version except for a fact that the output file generated with Aspose.Pdf for .NET/Java contains evaluation watermarks. However there is a limitation to manipulate/extract/remove/edit 4 attachments, annotations, pages of PDF document. However as shared by Tahir, you may request a 30 days temporary license for these products as well and try evaluating our components without any limitation.

Thanks for the responses. We have been evaluating the product for couple of months now and have purchased a Total license. The product has been handling most of our documents conversion/merging requirements successfully. We just wanted to know if there any known limitations around file sizes or number of pages in all the formats you support, mainly doc/docx, pdf and rtf.

Let us know,
Umesh Veeraiah

Hi Umesh,

When using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java in trial/demo mode, you can only concatenate 4 pages of PDF file. But since you have purchased the product license, I hope that there should not be any issue while concatenating PDF files of any size. Please try using our products and in case you encounter any issue, please feel free to contact.

Hi Umesh,

I am representing Aspose.Words.

Thanks for your inquiry. The limitations are only applied in evaluation mode of Aspose.Words. Since you have product license, there will be no limitations of file size and number of pages while import/export documents. I suggest you to read Aspose.Words features while exporting/importing documents from following documentation links:
