I’ve noticed several layout-errors, that occur using Aspose.Word 21.9 for Java.
Some similar problems have been solved in WORDSNET-22166 + WORDSNET-15201 (Aspose 21.6).
However: a few issues with section-breaks do still exist.
They can easily be reproduced with the following file Footnote_Bug.docx (32.5 KB)
The result depends on the used Aspose.Words for Java version:
- 16.8 (licensed) -> Footnote_Bug-Aspose-16.8.pdf (56.5 KB)
- 21.9 (trial) Footnote_Bug-Aspose-21.9.pdf (75.5 KB)
- Expected: a single page with 2 clean footnotes (full width, without overlapping other text)
The following happens:
Foot-notes in different section-breaks are causing the section-break to be handled as page-break.
WORDSNET-22166 + WORDSNET-15201 have fixed this issue for simpler layouts. But documents with complex layouts (see attached DOCX) appear still to cause this issue.
Simpler layouts are handling the section-break correctly, but the footnotes may overlap text on the page, which intersects with the footnote-text.
There is no attached example. But this happens if the “two-column”-section below the first footnote (in the example-document) is removed. This simplifies the layout and changes the result.
Footnotes should always have full page-width. If the footnote belongs to a “multi column”-section it seems to use the width of this section. This results in an inconsistent layout of the footnote-texts.
Is this a known issue? Are there known workarounds or solutions?
