How to define index in the Doc to PDF conversion

I am using Aspose.Words latest release 17.2.0 to convert Word2Pdf. However, basic conversion (using document.save(outputFile, pdfSaveOptions) ) is working fine so far.

Opening the generated PDF in pdf viewer does not contain INDEX though the .docx contains TOC. Converting the same document to PDF from MS Word contains those INDEX in pdf viewer.

Question: is there in Aspose.Words Java API to set any property to get this INDEX available in generated PDF?

Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please attach your input Word document and output PDF file showing the undesired behavior here for testing? We will investigate the issue on our end and provide you more information.

Best regards,

Thanks and please find files in attachment.

Hi Kalam,

Thanks for being patient. You can meet this requirement by using the following code:

<pre style=“background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: “Courier New”; font-size: 9pt;”>Document doc = new Document(“D:\temp\input.docx”);

PdfSaveOptions opts = new PdfSaveOptions();

doc.save(“D:\temp\awjava-17.3.pdf”, opts);

Hope, this helps.

Best regards,


Thanks, it works :slight_smile:
