Convert DOCX file into Image based PDF

Dear,

We would like to use the Aspose.Word product to convert DOCX file to PDF.
This PDF we would want to be image based, so no teyt based pdf, but image.

Every page in the DOCX document, should become a separate image in the pdf.

Doing like this, we hope to preserve the layouting of the Docx file.

In general the text based is ok, but we occasionally run into the issue that there a few more lines on the PDF page than on the original DOcx page.

Many thanks for your support

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your inquiry. In your case, we suggest you please save the document to TIFF file format as shown below and convert it to PDF using code example shared in following article. Hope this helps you.
Convert an Image to PDF

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "input.docx");
doc.save(MyDir + "output.tiff", SaveFormat.TIFF);

However, if your issue is related to page layout then you will face the same issue in output TIFF file format. Could you please attach your input Word document here for testing? We will investigate the issue on our side and provide you more information.

Hi Tahir,


Many thanks for the quick reply.

I have attached the document used for testing and the resulting pdf.
The problem is with the last paragraph of page 6. I think it is related to not respecting the Widow/Orhpan control.
Even though that paragraph has the setting to avoid widow/orphan lines, the resulting pdf is not respecting that setting.

In the Docx document, there are two lines of that paragraph on page 7. In the resulting pdf document, there is only one line on page 7.

I’m using AsposeWords 17.6 Java.

For us it is a very strong requirement that the pdf document must be identical to the original Docx document.

Regards

Patrick

Do you have any estimate by when the bug could be fixed. We are currently evaluating Aspose.Words to be integrated in our of our applications.

However as indicated before, we have a strong requirement that the resulting output of the pdf conversion must be identical to the original Docx document.

Any indicated of timeline would be appreciated.

Kind regards
