I would like to know how your conversion-engine actually converts a word file with resources linking to external resources (Like images), to a PDF.
I am working within an environment, where we would like to convert a word file to a pdf without risking exposing our self to load potential malicious software through external paths in word elemets, but still allow for the links to exist within the pdf. If the latter is not possible, it is also fine, but we want to make sure, we are not requesting potential malicious data.
I’ve been looking at the following topics, but I am not quite sure, how they handle external links:
We are working with a 14.x version of your software, and it is not possible for us to update.
I hope I make myself clear, but if not, please do not hesitate to let me elaborate.
