I use Aspose Words (Java) to support .docx format in my app by converting RTF files to .docx. For one use-case, these .docx files get sent to a third-party app that reads them and converts them for ebook and print book formats. This third-party app, however, only recognises hyperlinks that are formatted using <w:hyperlink>, as per the OOXML docs here:
The trouble is that it seems Aspose doesn’t export hyperlinks that way, but instead uses fields - this method:
This means the third-party app we sometimes work with does not read the links in a .docx file generated by Aspose. While this is obviously a limitation of the third-party app, given that we don’t have any control over that, I was wondering if there is any way to tell Aspose to use the <w:hyperlink> method for links? That is, either through some save option that I’ve missed, or by formatting the RTF in such a way that Aspose will use this method.
Is there any way of achieving this, or any plans to update Aspose to use the <w:hyperlink> method (assuming that is the newer method)? I’ve tried changing the compatibility options to Word 2016 and Strict, but nothing has helped.
