Convert PDF to DOCX using C# - Annotation is not present in output word file

Hi,

i am using AsposeDocx to Convert the Annotated PDF document to Docx, the issue is that Annotation hides the actual text that is Annotated in PDF File.

I have attached the both input.pdf file as well output.docx file.

The following is my code snippet to convert annotated pdf to docx

var Options = new DocSaveOptions();
Options.WarningHandler = callback;              
Options.Format = DocSaveOptions.DocFormat.DocX;
Options.RecognizeBullets = true;                
var streamResult = new MemoryStream();
using ( var document = new Document(streamSource))
{
    document.Save(streamResult, Options);
}

Can you please guide how make it correct Annotated document.

input.pdf (244.5 KB)
output (2).docx (96.1 KB)

Thanks

You are using DocSaveOptions and saving document to DOCX file format. Please use OoxmlSaveOptions as shown below to save the document to DOCX file format. The DocSaveOptions is used for DOC file format.

var Options = new OoxmlSaveOptions();
Options.Compliance = OoxmlCompliance.Iso29500_2008_Strict;

var doc = new Document(MyDir + "input.pdf");
doc.Save(MyDir + "21.6.docx", Options);

We have tested the scenario using the above code example and noticed that the last page contents are lost after PDF to DOCX conversion. For the sake of correction, we have logged this problem in our issue tracking system as WORDSNET-22387. You will be notified via this forum thread once this issue is resolved. We apologize for your inconvenience.

The other contents of PDF are exported correctly in output DOCX. Please check the attached output DOCX. 21.6.docx (15.3 KB)

Hi ,

But Annotation is still missing in 21.6.docx. In PDF File, we have some annotation that will lost in converted docx file.

Please see the below PDF Annotation that is not present in docx file

The shared annotation does not export when you convert PDF to DOCX using Adobe Writer. Could you please share your expected output Word document?

Hi,

This is what i am thinking may be expected output of generated docx.

Just for Clarification, i am using Aspose.pdf library not Aspose.Word. Sorry My bad :frowning:

Annotated.docx (20.3 KB)

I have tried with Aspose.Pdf Version 21.6.0, and got the following docx file, which is incorrect as Annotation box appear but actual text is still missing

21.6.docx (46.9 KB)
