Do I need both Aspose.Words and Aspose.Pdf?

From the perspective of Aspose, my application does two things…

  1. Convert Word file to HTML
    Aspose.Words.Document docWord = new Aspose.Words.Document(wordFile);

  2. Convert Word file to secure PDF file
    Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Aspose.Words.Document(WordFile);
    PdfSaveOptions saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();
    PdfEncryptionDetails encryptionDetails = new PdfEncryptionDetails(string.Empty, “mypassword”, PdfEncryptionAlgorithm.RC4_128);
    saveOptions.EncryptionDetails = encryptionDetails;
    doc.Save(pdfAttachmentFileName, saveOptions);

This works fine but I need to be able to set the PDF security to allow printing. Can I do this with just Aspose.Words?


Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can achieve your requirement using only Aspose.Words. Please check the following code example. Hope this helps you.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Rendering.doc");

PdfSaveOptions saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();

// Create encryption details and set owner password.
PdfEncryptionDetails encryptionDetails = new PdfEncryptionDetails(string.Empty, "password", PdfEncryptionAlgorithm.RC4_128);

// Start by disallowing all permissions.
encryptionDetails.Permissions = PdfPermissions.DisallowAll;

// Extend permissions to allow printing
encryptionDetails.Permissions = PdfPermissions.Printing;
//Use multiple PdfPermissions as shown below
//encryptionDetails.Permissions = PdfPermissions.Printing | PdfPermissions.ModifyAnnotations | PdfPermissions.DocumentAssembly;
saveOptions.EncryptionDetails = encryptionDetails;

// Render the document to PDF format with the specified permissions.
doc.Save(MyDir + "Rendering.SpecifyPermissions Out.pdf", saveOptions);
