We would like to share with you that the issue (logged as PDFNET-46584) has been resolved and its fix will be available in Aspose.PDF for .NET 20.2 version which will be releasing in coming week. We will surely notify you as soon as the fix-in version is published.
Regarding the remaining ticket, we regret to share that they are not yet resolved as they need more time to get investigated and resolved. We will inform you as soon as we have some additional updates regarding their fix. Please spare us some time.
We experience a similar problem again. A customer uses the font Equip. The font is installed on our server but when converting (Word -> PDF -> PPTX) the text is not displayed.
Is this font not supported by you?
Using this font is quite important for the customer.
There are certain fonts that require a license in order to use them. However, we need to check about this particular font that you referred. Would you kindly share your sample source PDF file with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
The font is correctly used in the word file, but not in PDF or PPT.
It seems that the font can be used in different spellings.
I attached two zip files. Files_v1 is the one where the spelling is used and nothing is displayed in PPT. Files_v2 is a different spelling where the text is displayed but the font is still wrong. Files_v1.zip (26.4 KB) Files_v2.zip (63.2 KB)
We have tested the scenario in our environment and were able to replicate the issue. However, could you please provide the font file as well so that we can install it in our system and test again as it is necessary to install used fonts in the system where PDF file is being processed.
Furthermore, regarding PDFNET-46567, please provide MS Mincho font file that you have installed in your system so that we can further try to complete the opened investigation against this ticket.
I asked our customer if I can send you the font files. As the license is only for their company I would like to send the files per mail and not here. To which mail adress should I send the files? The customer asked me to emphasize that the files should only be used for the investigation (should be deleted after that) because the payed for them. Otherwise this will contradict the license.
Regarding PDFNET-46567, we don’t use the font MS Mincho. All information regarding this problem are in the comment from Jan 22 2020.
As per our understandings, these comments were in the response to PDFNET-46582 and PDFNET-46583 tickets. The issue related to MS Mincho font was PDFNET-46567 (initially reported by @jayjain). For the complete investigation of this issue, we need sample font file that is installed in user system.
Instead of sending the font file via email, you can please send it in a private message by clicking over username and pressing the Blue Message Button. We assure you that we use the files only for investigation purposes and erase them from our system once the investigation is done.
We have tested the scenario in our environment while using Aspose.PDF for .NET 20.12 and Aspose.Wrods for .NET 21.1. Following code snippet was used to carry out the conversions:
Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Words.Document(dataDir + "20201218_Admin_DAS.docx");
Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions saveOption = new Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions();
saveOption.Compliance = Words.Saving.PdfCompliance.PdfA1b;
saveOption.UseHighQualityRendering = true;
doc.Save(dataDir + "20201218_Admin_DAS.pdf", saveOption);
Document document = new Document(dataDir + "20201218_Admin_DAS.pdf");
document.Save(dataDir + "Converted.pptx", new PptxSaveOptions());
For the Files_V1, we did not notice any issue both in generated PDF and PPTX output after installing the fonts in our system. Please check the attached output PDF and PPTX that they both contains desired font.
For second set of files i.e. Files_v2, output PDF did not have the desired font and so did the output PPTX. The reason seems related to the font name in DOCX input file. The font name used in the Word file was different than the name of installed font in the system. However, the issue is more related to Aspose.Words and we request you create a topic in respective category so that it can further be investigated.
Regarding the other issue i.e. PDFNET-46581, here we have the same situation as in PDFNET-46582 and PDFNET-46583. A new bullet would appear, if you would be formatting a list. And a list is an element of logical structure, which is not recognized by the API. Without this recognition you are formatting just an ordinary paragraph, where those bullets are ordinary characters, not list item markers.
The ticket information has been updated as per your feedback and we will inform you as soon as we have further updates regarding its resolution.
PS: We have uninstalled and removed the fonts from our system after testing the scenario.
