Aspose Document Viewer

From what I understand Aspose has a Document Viewer and have a couple of questions about that.

  1. What types of files can Aspose Document Viewer open?
  2. Does it open the documents within the browser within the viewer?
  3. What functionality does the viewer have? We are looking for:
    -Ability to view thumbnails
    -Zoom in/out
    -Print from viewer
    -Rotate page/all
    -Page Counter
    -Fit to page
    -Paging through document
    -Delete page
    We are looking for a solution that functions like Adobe plug-in, but that will work in Microsoft Edge. Will the Aspose Document Viewer working in Microsoft Edge?
    Thanks for your help!

Hi Krista,

We do not offer any viewer; you can go for the viewer offered by our sister company GroupDocs. Please visit http://groupdocs.com/ and check the features offered by GroupDocs viewer and post your query there if you have any confusion.

Best Regards,


Thanks for the quick response!
Are these types of things no longer available:


Hi Krista,

No viewer is part of Aspose APIs however you can convert documents to images and then use any image viewer to load those images. The viewer referenced in your second link is a plugin which is using Aspose.Words for .NET at backend to convert Word documents to images.

You can extend it to convert and load other document types or build your own viewer following the same pattern.

Best Regards,


I can see from your original query that you were looking for web based viewers for various file formats. I’m happy to update you that we have built web viewers for various file formats at aspose.app.

Here you can find a list of the viewers supported:

Please note that all these viewers were built using Aspose APIs. So you can also use Aspose file APIs to built such customized viewers for your own applications and products.

You can use GroupDocs Viewer for .NET and Java as well to add viewer functionality in your own applications.
