@miniseb31,

Thanks for your inquiry. There is no public access to our issue tracking system. We will inform you via this forum thread once there is any update available on this feature.

@miniseb31,

Thanks for your patience. There are two options for rendering of an OLE object (either embedded or linked) while inserting:

  • As an icon (see attached OleAsIcon.docx)
  • As a snapshot of the first page of an inserted document (see attached OleWithRendition.docx)
    OleDocs.zip (182.6 KB)

Please note that Aspose.Words does not (and will not) support rendering of documents of non-Word formats. If you want to go with option #2, then you will need to provide a rendition of the first page of an inserted document on your own.

We can proceed with option #1 without problems. Could you please share your expected output? We will then proceed on this feature accordingly.
