Document converted to PDF - signature lines are messed up

we used trial version to convert word documents to PDF and signature lines were showing perfectly fine.
we bought the license for Aspose.Words for .NET 18.4 and deployed code to QA server and testers reported that signature lines are messed up.

Thanks for your inquiry. Please ZIP and upload your input Word document and output PDF file showing the undesired behavior here for testing. We will investigate the issue on our end and provide you more information.

As requested attached is the word document and converted PDF. As you can see signature lines and formatting around them are messed up.
Please suggest what can we do to fix them. (186.3 KB)

We have logged this issue in our bug tracking system. The ID of this issue is WORDSNET-16854. Your thread has been linked to this issue and you will be notified as soon as it is resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.


We have generated a PDF file (see PDF files in (354.0 KB)) with the current code base of Aspose.Words and found that the signature lines in questions are being rendering correctly now.

However, there are some differences between the attached MS Word and Aspose.Words outputs. Specifically the text “Description of collateral security given to secure line of credit Account, as defined below (the “Mortgaged Property”):” on Page 2 appears higher in Aspose.Words’ output and because of this few lines are moved up in Aspose.Words and appear on previous page. We think, this may not be a problem for you. Please tell, Is this current output (as shown in Current Output.pdf) acceptable for you?
