Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the same behavior as MS Word does. If you convert your document to PDF using MS Word, you will get the same output. We have attached the output PDF file with this post for your kind reference. The output is generated by latest version of Aspose.Words for .NET 17.10.

Correct display of these elements critical for us. What are the ways of solving this problem?


Thanks for your inquiry. In your case, we suggest you please set the table’s cell width according to your requirement. Please refer to the following article.
Specifying Table and Cell Widths

Please check the following code example. Hope this helps you.

    var document = new Document(MyDir + "report.html");
    foreach (Table table in document.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Table, true))
        foreach (Row row in table.Rows)
            foreach (Cell cell in row.Cells)
                if (cell.IsFirstCell)
                    cell.CellFormat.Width = 150;
                    cell.CellFormat.Width = 70;

    document.Save(MyDir + "17.10.docx");
    document.Save(MyDir + "17.10.pdf");

Such a decision is not suitable for us. There are a lot of similar tables in our system, with heterogeneous data.
We need the correct processing of “nowrap”.
Thank you in advance.


Thanks for your inquiry. In your CSS, we have not found the class “align-right js-money money”. We suggest you please use one of the following style in table’s cell. This works fine for output Word document but not for PDF.

<td style=“white-space: nowrap;”>1 288 031 031</td>
<td class=“money”>1 288 031 031</td>

Could you please share complete detail of your use case? We will then log this issue for PDF document in our issue tracking system. Thanks for your cooperation.

File with styles contains this class.
It’s critical for us that this solution must work as in *.doc as in *.pdf.
