Cells to PDF - footer not wrapping when the footer text contains & (&)

Hi all,

I have longer footer text that contains & character. In the original excel file the footer is rendered in 3 rows and it is rendered properly. When converting the excel file to PDF the right part of the footer is cut off and instead of 3 rows the footer is rendered in 2 rows.

If I replace & with and the converted PDF file is displayed properly.

Please try our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.7.1:

I have tested your scenario/case with v17.7.1 by converting your template file to PDF. Although I got two lines in the footer but no text is cut. I think it should be fine whether there are two lines or three lines in the footer if no text/content is cut from the footer. I have attached the output PDF file here for your reference:

Moreover, the font used your rendered file is “SimSun” but in my output PDF file (and also by MS Excel generated PDF file), the font is Arial. May be you have not installed/set Arial font in your environment.

Thank you.


Thanks for using Aspose APIs.

We were able to reproduce this issue when SimSun font is installed on the machine. We will look into this issue further and fix it.
