Aspose Words PageCount

We are using Aspose Words 17.6 and have a problem calling the pagecount property after loading a very large RTF file into a document. The RTF file has over 3,000 pages and the file is almost 5 MB in size. I tested on this particular document and after waiting 25 minutes for the property call to return I gave up.

Is there a work-around that I can use to get the page count for a large document ? Even if it took 5 minutes I would be OK with that, but the call never returns …

thank you

Thank you Awais - the fix is amazing. I downloaded the new Aspose.Words for 18.4 and the page count for a 3000 page document returns in under 10 seconds, instead of never returning …

thank you again
