Bullet Symbol is Lost after DOCX to PDF Conversion using .NET


Using Aspose.Words for .NET. When converting docx to pdf, the first bullet in a bulleted list is always lost.

See output pdf document screenshot:

Original docx document:
Converting to pdf issue example document.docx (50.9 KB)

Few hints regarding issue:

  1. Document is generated with custom product (not aspose) which exports data as a table.
  2. One table column content is exported as <w:altChunk …> (anchor for imported external content, reference to html content).
  3. Html content contains simple bulleted list. See example:
  • one
  • two
  • three
  • four
  • five
  1. Using latest Aspose.Words for .NET ( to convert to pdf. The first bullet is lost in each <w:altChunk…> html content in the final document.
  2. Everything is in order when saving as pdf in Microsoft Word.

Can you explain the behavior or confirm the bug.

Thank you.
