Migrating from Aspose Words 5 to 11 (.NET)

Hi everyone,

Back in 2009, I've purchased Aspose.Words 5 (.NET) and have been using it since to merge values ({MERGIEFIELD}s) based on client input in *.doc templates (over 2,000 and counting). I would like to upgrade to version 11 so I could process *.docx format as well.

I've downloaded Aspose.Words 11 trial version and rectified my code to match latest API. All functions work as expected, except for:

1. In some templates, tables are being rendered differently (compared to version 5). In most cases, some columns disappear or change their position.

2. RTL (Bidi) issues which I had to iron out using document builder (works OK so far)

3. Fonts are being modified (for instance, David outputs as Arial) - only when setting numeric values.

In most cases, it seems that the trial nag text messes things up, i.e. This document was truncated here because it was created using Aspose.Words in Evaluation Mode.

I would like to ask for a 10 days license, so I could make sure an upgrade won't wreck my web application functionality. It is extremely crucial step in our development and I ask for your consideration.

Hi Yosi,


Thanks for your inquiry.

I think the migration articles in the documentation will help you here: http://docs.aspose.com/display/wordsnet/Migrating+from+Earlier+Versions+of+Aspose.Words

Regarding your RTL bidi problem and fonts being modified, could you please describe what troubles you are having? Also if you can attach your code and template here it would be great.

In order to get rid of the evaluation watermark you can request a free 30-day trial license here: http://www.aspose.com/corporate/purchase/temporary-license.aspx

Thanks,
