Font kerning lost when saving to PDF


#1
When I load Word file and then save it to PDF the font kerning setting is not retained. Is there any way to change this behaviour? See attached input & output files. Second block of text has font kerning enabled in docx.

HI Aspose, this has been with you for two years now. This is a really essential feature. When are you planning to add that to your timeline?
