Converting Word Document to PDF problem


I’m facing a big problem when I convert a document from Word 2007 (docx) to PDF using the latest Aspose.Words for .net library (Versiom 8.0.0) running on .NET 3.5 sp1. The code per se is very simple:

static void Main(string[] args)
    string nombreEstatico = "Positiva1.";

    Aspose.Words.License awlic = new Aspose.Words.License();
    awlic.SetLicense(@"C:\Program Files (x86)\Aspose\Aspose.Total.lic");

    string MyDir = @"c:\TestDocs";

    Document doc = new Document(MyDir + nombreEstatico + "docx");
    doc.SaveToPdf(MyDir + nombreEstatico + "outdirecto.pdf");

As you can see nothing fancy, just open a word 2007 document and a PDF convertion. But if you look at the resulting PDF something is very wrong on the third page. In the PDF there is a page break where there is none on the DOCX file. I’m suspecting a margin issue.

The Word 2007 document is restricted for editing with “aaaa” as the password. But that seems not to be the problem cause I have the same result with the protection removed.

I’m attaching the docx document and the resulting PDF.

Looking forward to have news from you,

Hi Alexey:

How can I refactor de DOCX so it will convert to a PDF without a hitch?

Best Regards.


Thanks for your request. You can just remove two unnecessary empty paragraphs from your document. Please see the attached screenshot.
I also sent the refactored document to your e-mail.
Best regards.


The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-3136) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 17.9 update and this Aspose.Words for Java 17.9 update.
