We have been using Aspose.Words (22.214.171.124 fully licensed) to process 120,000 plus word documents and have run into a slight issue regarding fonts. Aspose is raising an “ArgumentException” with the message “Font 'Tempus Sans ITC' cannot be found.” where “Tempus Sans ITC” is a number of different fonts depending on the document being processed.
The process we are using takes a word document (doc, docx, rtf etc…), applies a page of extra information, and then saves the resulting document in three formats: document, text and Html. The error occurs when the process attempts to save the document in Html format, all other formats save without a problem. After examining a couple of example documents it would appear that the problem is caused by an un-recognised / missing font and WordArt.
What I was wondering is there a work around or someway I can provide Aspose an alternative Font to use? We are already removing all images from the document before saving (*) so losing the font on the WordArt would not potentially be a big issue.
(*) By removing shapes with ImageData (from previous forum example) and handling the “HtmlExportImageSaving” event.
I have provided a couple of anonymised example documents which will hopefully help with the investigation. Let me know if you need any more examples (we have a reasonably amount!) as I suspect the error won’t happen if the test machine has the “missing” font.
