Hi Tilal ,

Any updates on the above issue ?


Aspose.Pdf.Generator namespace is an old legacy approach and we recommend our clients to migrate from Aspose.Pdf.Generator approach to Aspose.Pdf for .NET DOM approach. Kindly see developer’s guide section about the DOM approach: Working with Aspose.Pdf.

We have tested your scenario with the latest version 17.7 of Aspose.Pdf for .NET API. Please try the following code. This is the output PDF file: Output17.7.pdf (22.3 KB)


HtmlLoadOptions opts = new HtmlLoadOptions();
// Load the PDF file
Document document = new Document(@"C:\Pdf\test182\input_output_code\" + "abcd.html", opts);
// get first page
Aspose.Pdf.Page page = document.Pages[1];
// get the first link annotation
LinkAnnotation linkAnnot = (LinkAnnotation)page.Annotations[1];
linkAnnot.Hyperlink = null;

// Create RedactionAnnotation instance for specific page region
RedactionAnnotation annot = new RedactionAnnotation(document.Pages[1], linkAnnot.Rect);
annot.FillColor = Aspose.Pdf.Color.White;
annot.Color = Aspose.Pdf.Color.Black;
// save in the PDF format
