Avoid Text Shifting in Table Cell during DOCX Word Document to HTML File Conversion using C# | Text Direction


This Topic is related to a previous enquriy. There seems to be another problem with rotated text. DOCX to HTML conversion issue with text direction in table's cell using C#

When converting from a Docx to HTML, with a table and the text inside is rotated 90° or 270°. It moves the text to a different location inside the table cell.

We use Aspose word 20.9

var convertedDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document(@“C:\temp\Debug\RotatedTextSource.docx”);

Steps to reproduce:

  • Insert a table into word
  • Add text to a cell
  • Rotate the text by using Text Direction in the header under Table Tools -> Layout
  • Rotate the text 90° or 270°/( the Text direction is pointing up or down)
  • Convert the document to HTML

You should see in the output HTML, the text is in a different location in the table cell to the source Docx.

I’ve attached a screenshot and test files. Please take a look.
