Aspose not able to render checkboxes of WordDoc in PDF


I tried converting a word document containing checkbox to PDF using Aspose v 17.1.0. However, the generate pdf file didn’t render the marked checkboxes correctly.

I have attached the word document along with this post.<a class=“attachment”
The word doc is present in the AsposeTest.zip file
The corresponding pdf that was generated by Aspose is AsposeTest_Generated.pdf<a class=“attachment”

Hi Tahir,

We are using Java. Can you check which version of Java supports this feature?

I tried using the Aspose Words for Java 17.9 version, but it didn’t work. Below is the java code snippet which converts the doc file to pdf using the 17.9 v of Aspose Words.

public byte[] convertDocxToPdf(byte[] docxBytes) throws Exception {
ByteArrayInputStream docxInputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(docxBytes);
Document docx = new Document(docxInputStream);

ByteArrayOutputStream pdfOutputStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
docx.save(pdfOutputStream, SaveFormat.PDF);

return pdfOutputStream.toByteArray();


I have also attached the output pdf file. AsposeTest (6).pdf (44.4 KB)

Can you please check whether there is any issue with our conversion code? Also please check whether you are able to reproduce our results.



Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that Aspose.Words requires TrueType fonts when rendering documents 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’re converting documents to PDF. Please refer to the following article:
