Aspose.Words vs Aspose.pdf

If Aspose.Words is needed for Aspose.pdf. then what is the need for Aspose.pdf. Can’t I just create a Words document and then save it as pdf? What advanages am I getting by using Aspose.pdf to create the PDF over Aspose.Words?

Hi,

I would like to inform you that Aspose.Pdf is used to create PDF documents from scratch using the code, whereas Aspose.Words allows you to create Word document via programming. Previously, in order to convert a Word document to PDF you had to convert the Word document into Aspose.Pdf format using Aspose.Words and then Aspose.Pdf would convert it into a PDF document.

However, Aspose.Words can now convert a Word document to PDF directly. Please have a look at the following article:
How-to: Convert a Document to PDF

Nevertheless, I would like to share with you that this feature is available in Aspose.Words for .NET only.

I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please do let us know.
Regards,
