Export Document Structure Tags in PDF using .NET

Hi Team,

We use Aspose.Words .Net version 21.7 with valid license to save document as Accessibility compliant PDF’s. Using “ExportDocumentStructure” in PdFSaveOptions we could retain the tags in pdf but would like to get what we only need.

Couple of expectations are:

  • We use layout tables (nested tables) to place two components side by side. We are not expecting the layout table tag structures to be exported to PDF’s but the items inside that table should be exported. LayoutTable expectation.png (42.6 KB)
  • Also, tables first row and first column is created with TH, which comes by default. We would like to have control over here only when we set it to happen. Table TH Expectation.png (43.7 KB)

We would like to Export Document Structure Tags in PDF according to above requirement. Much appreciated if we hear back earliest due to a close ETA in our end. Thanks in advance.

Attached a sample project to play around and suggest us what we are missing.LayoutTableTagStructure.7z (4.6 KB)


Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the behavior of MS Word. If you perform the same scenario using MS Word, you will get the same output.

Could you please ZIP and attach your expected output PDF here for our reference? We will then provide you more information on it.


Thank you for the response.

Ya, We did performed the expectations with MS Word. We were able to achieve the second point in our ask using TableStyleOptions. For the first one, we couldn’t get that. A confirmation would be great whether its doable or not.

Here is the document which holds our expected tag structure for your reference. More info from your end will be helpful ExpectedTagOutput.pdf (63.0 KB)
