Footer Format not preserved in Word Template

Formatting of the footer defined in the Tecnhical Research Note is not preserved (there is a tab between the Assigned Analyst, Confidentiality field and the Page #, the rendered document does not contain the tabs after performing the save operation.

The following code can be used to demonstrate this behavior when using the attached template. No merginhg has to happen, simply open this template and load it into a Document object and select doc.Save.

Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Aspose.Words.Document((@"c:\Aspose\TemplateDocument.docx");<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />



Thanks for your request. The problem occurs because there are Absolutely Positioned Tabs in footer of your document. Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not support such tabs at the moment. That is why they are lost upon processing.

Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as it is resolved.

Best regards,

Thanks for the quick reply. Do you have any idea how to work around this issue, or can you provide an estimated time that this issue will be resolved?

We are planning to deliver documents with these types of footers into production shortly.

Pelase let me know what you can.


Thanks for your request. The only workaround we can suggest you at the moment is refactoring your document. You can use table without borders to layout elements in the footer and header.

We plan to support absolutely positioned tabs somewhere in August. But please note all estimates we give in this forum are rough estimates and you cannot 100% rely on them.

Best regards,
