Cannot open docx in Open XML Tool after removing watermark

Hi,

I’m not sure what is wrong but when I remove a watermark from the document using ASPOSE, I cannot open it in Open XML SDK Tool. We use this tool very often to see the structure and/or debug issues but now we cannot use it.

Code to remove watermark:

    private static void RemoveWatermark(Document doc, String watermarkText) {
        NodeCollection headerColl = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.HEADER_FOOTER, true);
        if (headerColl == null || headerColl.getCount() == 0)
            return;

        Node[] headerNodes = headerColl.toArray();
        int headerCount = headerNodes.length;
        for (int i = 0; i < headerCount; i++) {
            HeaderFooter header = (HeaderFooter) headerNodes[i];
            if (header.isHeader()) {
                NodeCollection shapeColl = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.SHAPE, true);
                if (shapeColl.getCount() > 0) {
                    Node[] shapeNodes = shapeColl.toArray();
                    for (Node node : shapeNodes) {
                        if (node instanceof Shape) {
                            Shape shape = (Shape) node;
                            if (shape.getName().startsWith("MyWaterMark_")
                                    || shape.getTextPath().getText().equalsIgnoreCase(watermarkText)) {
                                shape.remove();
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

Thanks,

Looks like if I remove the ooxmlsaveoptions, then it opens fine.

I was using ooxmlSaveOptions.setCompliance(OoxmlCompliance.ISO_29500_2008_STRICT);

Is there another way to save it to be compatible with Office 2013/2016?

Thanks,

Mahesh

Hi Mahesh,

Thanks for your patience. It is to inform you that the issue which you are facing is actually not a bug in Aspose.Words. So, we have closed this issue (WORDSNET-15121) as ‘Not a Bug’.

The Open XML SDK 2.0 cannot read ISO/IEC 29500 Strict Format files. Starting from 2.5 Open XML SDK supports Strict Format. Please check the detail here:

Please use Document.CompatibilityOptions.OptimizeFor(MsWordVersion.Word2013) method. Hope this helps you.
