Hi team,


I have just downloaded Aspose.Words for Android via Xamarin for trying at my end. I also installed Visual Studio for Mac on my Mac machine to give it a try. But I don’t know the steps to create a very basic application and include this API in it for getting started. Can you please list the steps to get started with this API with Visual Studio for Mac? Detailed steps in getting started is highly appreciated from Aspose team.
