I have zipped two documents and attached them here. The smaller-sized word file is a portion of the large file that also fails to process giving me the same error.


After an initial test with the licensed latest (21.6) version of Aspose.Words for .NET, we were unable to reproduce any exceptions on our end. See following output PDF files:

So, we suggest you to please upgrade to the latest (21.6) version of Aspose.Words for .NET.

Thanks for replying. I noticed the pdf that you attached are having different formats than what I sent in the original file. Lets take the smaller file-“portion”. The word file that I sent has 17 pages, and the pdf you sent has 27 pages. If you compare then page-by-page, you will notices so many blank spaces are added in the pdf version. Could you please explain what is the reason for this?
Also, the version of aspose that I am using right now is 20.10. Is there a way for you to test this document in the same version to see if it fails for you too?
