Formatting is wrong on output- some lines get kicked to next page

Using the attached file, if converted to pdf with aspose, certain text lines at the bottom of some pages get kicked to the next page. The formatting is not being totally respected.

Attached a compare image as well, left is Word, right is output.

Added another example of what seems like the same problem (page 1-2)

Added another example of possibly the same issue (see end of page 1 to 2)

Hi Robert,


Thanks for your inquiry. We have tested the scenario with your shared documents and noticed that some lines are pushed to second page. We have logged following tickets in our issue tracking system for further investigation and rectification. We will notify you as soon as these issues are resolved.

WORDSNET-15363: Rendering issue of RW-25650.doc
WORDSNET-15368: Rendering issue of RW-27064.doc
WORDSNET-15369: Rendering issue of RW-26951.doc

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Hi Robert,


Thanks for your patience. In reference to WORDSNET-15363 ticket, we have investigated the issue and found it is not a bug but expected behavior. Your document has 3 compatibility options that are not supported by Aspose.Words and unfortunately, these options would not be likely supported in Aspose.Words.


  1. Do full justification the way WordPerfect 6.x for Windows does
  2. Truncate font height
  3. Wrap trailing spaces to next line

You may turn off these problematic compatibility options as a workaround, then Aspose.Words and MS Word produce identical PDFs.

Best Regards,

Hi Robert,

In addition to above reply, please note we have further investigated WORDSNET-15368 issue and found that it is causing due to compatibility options. We are closing this issue as Won't Fix. Please note MS Word shrinks spaces in compatibility mode when compatibility option "Do full justification the way WordPerfect 6.x for Windows does." is set and CharacterSpacingType = DontCompress.

You may turn off these problematic compatibility options as a workaround, then Aspose.Words and MS Word will produce identical PDFs.

Best Regards,

@RobertBluebeam,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-15369) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 17.7 update and this Aspose.Words for Java 17.7 update.

After testing in Version 17.8 it does not seem that this has been fixed. We are getting the same results as before.

@RobertBluebeam

Thanks for your feedback. As already stated above, we have fixed only Wrap trailing spaces(WORDSNET-15369) issue. Other two issues are closed as Won’t Fix. For these issue you may turn off above sated compatibility options as a workaround, then Aspose.Words and MS Word will produce identical PDFs. Hopefully it will help you to resolve the issue.
