Document not displaying signature images

We create documents with signature images, and save the document to a database as a byte array. We then later need to load the document and display it.
Using an older version of Aspose.Words (product version 2012.09.30, file version, this worked correctly.
Now using Aspose.Words 18.1 the signature images do not display.
If I save the byte array as a file and open using MS Word, the signatures display correctly.
Is this a bug in how the Aspose.Words Document class now processes this byte array?
Or are there changes is how I need to load the byte array into the Document object?

I should also note, I tried version 18.6, and the same issue is still present.


Thanks for your inquiry. To ensure a timely and accurate response, please ZIP and attach the following resources here for testing:

  • Your input Word document
  • Aspose.Words generated output DOCX file showing the undesired behavior
  • Please create a standalone simple console application (source code without compilation errors) that helps us to reproduce your problem on our end and attach it here for testing.

I have attached a ZIP file containing the following:

  • “agreement template 3” - a template file with merge fields used with Aspose.Words 18 to create a Word document
  • “agreement_20180621_062401.doc” - the document that was created from the merge (in it you can see the signature images)
  • “TestAspose” - folder containing a C# solution used to input that Word document and use Aspose to convert to a JPEG format
  • “agreement_20180621_062515.jpeg” - output of the Aspose JPEG conversion (in it you can see that the signature images do NOT appear)

Please let me know if you need more information.


I am afraid, we do not see any attachments in this thread.
