I would like to ask you whether you have any news about WORDSNET-11488?
We use Aspose.Words for converting DOC/DOCX to PDF/A-1b. Unfortunately, we have to react to new eIDAS Regulation (European Union) 910/2014. That will be valid from July 1, 2016 and requires a PDF/A-2 for long-term signatures (PAdES-LTV).
We are considering the purchase of Aspose.Pdf, but two-phase conversion can be risky. We clearly prefer the direct conversion of DOC/DOCX.
