Checked checkboxes in Word not checked in PDF

We are using the Aspose.Words/Aspose.Pdf combination to convert a Word document into a PDF document. The Word document contains Form Fields, text boxes and check boxes. The text boxes convert very well, the check boxes however are never checked, even when the user checked them.

The record for the checkbox in the xml file is always (checked or unchecked):


Can we do anything to see checked check boxes in Word as checked in PDF?

We are using Word 2007. We already had problems using the new 2007 .dotx format where images were not converted at all. By saving the template into a Word97-2003 .dot format the images appeared in the converted PDF file.

Thanks a lot for any help,



Can you please provide us with the word file so that we can more accurately determine the cause of the problem.


The .dot file is attached


I have checked this and the problem is caused by the xml generated by Aspose.Words which has same output for both checked and unchecked boxes. Please post this on the Aspose.Words forum and let them have a look at it.
