Aspose Html to Word conversion is failing

We are evaluating Aspose.Words .Net Core based solution for Html -> Word conversion for our live application.

While converting a file from html -> word, the output word file is not coming that well.

The code used for conversion is mentioned below
Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Aspose.Words.Document(dataDir + “cover_page.html”);
doc.Save(dataDir + “cover_page.doc”);

The input html file and converted word file are attached with this post.Aspose.Words.zip (53.6 KB)

Please have a look at it at the earliest.

Hi team,

We are considering Aspose.Words as a replacement for cloud convert for our Live Application. But for that we need this issue to be fixed.

When can we expect this issue to be fixed.

Regarding WORDSNET-17443, the source HTML document has the following structure (only relevant parts are shown):

    .ql-container.ql-snow {
        background-color: #e8e8e8;
    .ql-container > .ql-editor {
        background-color: #fefefe;
<body class="ql-container ql-snow">
    <div class="ql-editor">
        <!-- ... -->

Background color of the <body> element is gray, and Aspose.Words uses it as Page Color. However, gray color is not visible in browsers, because <body> is fully covered with white <div>, which is not imported by Aspose.Words. MS Word produces better results for this document, because it does not import “background-color” of <body> elements as Page Color.

I think, we could improve import logic of Page Color by adding special processing for cases where <body> elements are fully covered by nested block-level elements (<div>, for example). We could import “background-color” of the innermost block as Page Color.

As a workaround, you can remove the "background-color: #e8e8e8" declaration from the stylesheet of the HTML document. Hope, this helps.


After further investigation, we would like to suggest you to use any of the following workarounds:

Reset background color of the document programmatically:

Document doc = new Document("in.html");
doc.BackgroundShape = null;

Or edit the source HTML document and remove the “background-color” style from the <body> element:

.ql-container.ql-snow {
    <!-- background-color: #e8e8e8; -->
    font-size: 12pt;

Hope, this helps.
