Converting Word to Pdf misshandles neutral characters in BiDi text runs


I have an word object HebrewTest.doc. In this object there is the text " end_ 54%בדיקה: ", when the file is converted to Pdf using Aspose Words, the same text is rendered as “%54בדיקה: end_” (see HebrewTest.Pdf).
The code used for the Pdf conversion is:

var doc1 = new Document("C:\HebrewTest.doc");
var pdfSaveOptions = new Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions
    JpegQuality = 100,
    TextCompression = Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfTextCompression.None,
pdfSaveOptions.MetafileRenderingOptions.RenderingMode =
doc1.Save("C:\HebrewTest.pdf", pdfSaveOptions);

Please advise how to configure the conversion in order to preserve the Word file character layout.

Hi Lucian,

Thanks for your inquiry.

I have not found the shared text in HebrewTest.doc. I have attached the screenshot of input Doc file with this post. The output Pdf is same as input Doc file. I have attached output Pdf file with this post for your kind reference. It would be great if you please share some more detail about your query.

Hi Tahir,

The “end_” and the “54%” strings are present in the file I’ve sent you.
In the output file you have send they are displayed correctly.
Please let me know what version of Aspose.Words have you used for the conversion. I have used

Hi Lucian,

Thanks for your inquiry. I tested the scenario using latest version of Aspose.Words. Please download the latest version from here:

Hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any more queries.


We’ve tested again with Aspose.Words version, and discovered there are still differences between the Word document and the PDF document.

I’ve attached a small console application describing the issue - I’ve highlighted with red the words which are reversed when saving the word document to PDF.

Thank you,
