Regarding WORDSNET-19553, it is to update you that we have completed the analysis of this issue but I am afraid, because of complexity, the implementation of this issue has been postponed till a later date. There are no estimates available at the moment. The analysis details are as follows:
The problem occurs because the document contains a Continuation notice.
In this case, MS Word calculates the footnote height as:
Separator height + Footnote content height + Continuation notice height
It happens even when footnotes do not split between pages.
This behavior was true for compatibility mode and for MsWord2013, MsWord 2016. Aspose.Words currently works like these versions of MS Word.
Moreover, in MS Word 2013 and later, footnote continuation separator and continuation notice were ignored. One could set the footnote continuation separator and continuation notice in UI, but nothing happened. But starting from some time, Microsoft brought back the footnote continuation separator and continuation notice with an update for MS Word 2016.
Also, the logic of it’s applying has been changed. It seems that MS Word includes the notice height in the footnote height only if the footnote continues on the next column or page.
We will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue will be resolved in future. We apologize for any inconvenience.
