Hi,


Thanks for your inquiry. Our development team has completed the analysis of this issue and the root cause has been identified. However, the implementation of the fix of this issue has been postponed till a later date. Tamil language requires support of advanced typographic features, and these features are not supported by Aspose.Words at the moment. We will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue is resolved. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi Aspose,


Is almost 9 months from the last posted query. May I know if you have any new update? Is possible to share the ETA for the issue again?

Best Regards,
Feri Gunawan

Hi Feri,


Thanks for being patient. I am afraid, we cannot provide any reliable ETA at the moment, since none of the advanced typography features required for Tamil language are currently supported by Aspose.Words. We will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue is resolved. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Best regards,

@Feri,

The source Word document can now be rendered correctly with the help of the Aspose.Words.Shaping.HarfBuzz nuget package:

var doc = new Aspose.Words.Document("template.doc");
doc.LayoutOptions.TextShaperFactory = Aspose.Words.Shaping.HarfBuzz.HarfBuzzTextShaperFactory.Instance;
doc.Save(@"output.pdf");

Please refer to following article for more information.
