Generated PDF not showing WMF images

Good afternoon.

We have a requirement to generate a Word document and a PDF from an html page. The documents must be of high quality, and could contain a number of images of various formats.

Using Aspose.Words for Java, I have created a number of test samples, which on the whole satisfy our requirements. However, there is one type of image that is causing an issue. We use high quality WMF images for maps, so that they can be zoomed into without losing sharpness. In the test samples (see attached), the Word document renders WMF’s with no issues, but the PDF does not (I believe the images that do render were created from gif’s).

Would you expect the PDF document to be able to render WMF images, or is this something that is not supported at this time?

We are using version 13.6.0 in a Java 6/Spring MVC 3.2 environment hosted on a tomcat server.

Thank you

Hi Awais,

Thank you for your reply.

I understand that this process may take some time, but I wonder if you could provide an update of where in the process this issue has reached? It is important for us to know if the issue is fixable, and if so what sort of timescales are involved.

Thank you


Hi Gary,

Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, your issue is not resolved yet. This issue is pending for analysis and is in the queue. Unfortunately, at the moment I cannot provide you any reliable estimate. However, you will surely be notified via this thread as soon as it is resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,


We are at a fairly critical point in our project. Is there anyway to get an estimate of how long a response and a solution might take.

Would engaging your consulting services speed up solving the problem?

Given our project timeline it is essential for us to know if we have to drop Aspose and look for another solution. Our drop dead date is 2nd Aug.
