Hi,


Regarding WORDSNET-11436, our product team has completed the work on your issue and has come to a conclusion that this issue and the undesired behaviour you’re observing is actually not a bug in Aspose.Words. So, we have closed this issue as ‘Not a Bug’.

This looks more like a bug in Mono. It is quite difficult (or maybe even impossible) to modify our framework to fix that error in Mono, so we are not going to do it. But we have one workaround to suggest. If you save picture from this document as PNG (for example, from Word - Right click on the picture -> “Save As Picture”), remove old picture and insert the new one, you’ll obtain the document that can be proceeded in Mono without that error.

Best regards,

Is there any ETA on fixing this bug? It has been over 4 months since it was first reported.


Thanks

Hi,


Thanks for your inquiry. We had closed this issue sometime ago. It was ‘not a bug’ in Aspose.Words API. I am copying my previous reply here for your reference:

We are trying to get a work around for this bug. Can we ask what methods does aspose use in .net to generate images? Do you use any 3rd party code/libraries when generating images? We are trying to recreate that problem for Mono 4 framework in order to report it to Mono support.


Currently aspose.words is not very usable on mono because of the image problem. Fixing this bug will open up more sales for you on osx and linux.
Hi,

We are in coordination with product team to get answer pertaining to your queries. Soon you will be updated with the required information.

Best regards,

Hi,


We are not using any third party libraries for generating images. Now, we use only GDI+ for these purposes. As we know in Windows Mono uses GDI+ library that is included with the operating system while in UNIX it provides its own implementation of this API in the “libgdiplus.so” shared library. We suspect this problem might be caused by errors in that library. Hope, this helps.

Best regards,
