Avoiding blank page in PDF generated from doc file

I have a blank space / newline (br tags) / paragraph (p tags) appearing at the end of my word file. In a way all these are the white spaces appearing at the end of my document. I do not have full control on these trailing white spaces.

When such word file is converted to PDF, I had a problem. In some cases user tend to get a blank PDF page at the end. I found that page is not blank, but it is displaying trailing white spaces.

While I am working on to cleanup the source document itself, so that source word file will be clean. I was curios to know if (by handling some event / applying some setting) can I avoid such blank page creation while converting doc into PDF using Aspose Word.Net? Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

@Aniruddha.Bhide,

Please ZIP and upload your sample input Word document here for testing. We will investigate the issue on our end and provide you more information.

Sorry for the delay in response, but it took me a while to reproduce this case.
Here with I am sharing attachment doc file used for PDF generation. I have provided the output PDF file as well.

Attachment Details -

  1. Document “Template_20171204065459-00048.doc” is a word file input to Aspose for conversion
    to PDF.
    A. “Body_POCWord.htm” has the body content appearing in word file.
    B. Folder “Body_POCWord” has the header and footer section references in word file.

  2. “Template_20171204065459-00048.pdf” is a PDF file generated by Aspose.

Word file has two pages in it. both having some content in it.
PDF produced by Aspose has two pages, but as you can observe in attachment - all the content is fitted in single page and second page appears as blank.

Please suggest. Thanks in advance”
