Aspose.Pdf - PDF to Docx missing text and other conversion issues

Hi,

I am using Aspose.PDF for PDF to Docx conversion using following code.

Code Snippet:

Document pdfDocument = new Document(new FileStream(dataDir + “input.pdf”, FileMode.Open));
DocSaveOptions saveOptions = new DocSaveOptions();
saveOptions.Format = DocSaveOptions.DocFormat.DocX;
saveOptions.RecognizeBullets = true;
saveOptions.Mode = DocSaveOptions.RecognitionMode.Textbox;
saveOptions.RelativeHorizontalProximity = 2.5f;
pdfDocument.Save(dataDir + “\OutputDocx\” +“output.docx”, saveOptions);

Following issues are identified while converting PDF files in Docx:

  • Bullet points are converted as special symbols.
  • Some textual content are converted as an image.
  • Slide colors are changed and text is missing for some PDF files having some PowerPoint slides.
  • For PDF files with mix content (text and scanned), converted files have incomplete text.

I have attached PDF files and converted RTF files for two cases mentioned above.Please help me to resolve these issues.
