Missing Lines in Table in PDF Footer

I have a table in a footer that is missing lines in the table. I think this might be related to merging cells in the table. Is this problem already logged?
Many thanks for checking the attached file.

Thanks for your inquiry. How can I reproduce this problem on my side? I tried converting your document to each format, and I cannot reproduce the problem.
Could you please provide the code which will allow me to reproduce the problem on my side?
Best regards,

Many thanks. I’ve now reproduced the problem.
The table layout changes when I do a:
Before publishing to PDF or Word (PDF example provided).
I’ve included one PDF without update table layout and one with the statement in.
I may not be using this statement correctly (generally after update fields etc).
Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated!!
Regards, Bruce

Also, the footer contains an Author Field. The sample sets the built in document property for the author.
However, the Author field in the footer is not updating after the update fields is performed.
I’ve also checked the main application and the fields are being set correctly but do not appear to be updating in the footer.
Any thoughts on this one too?
Regards, Bruce


Thanks for your request. Actually, you do not normally need to call UpdateTableLayout method as cell and table widths are maintained automatically. You might need to call this method before exporting to PDF, only in rare cases where a table appears incorrectly laid out in PDF output.
Regarding AUTHOR field, you are right, Aspose.Words cannot update AUTHOR field in the document. However, Aspose.Words can update DOCPROPERTY fields. So you can use it instead AUTHOR field. Here is field code:
You will be notified as soon as it is supported.
Best regards,

Many thanks for the info about DOCPROPERTY …
I’ll run without UpdateTableLayout and see if there are any problems.

Hi Bruce,
It is perfect that using DOCPROPERTY field is acceptable for you. We will wait for your testing results regarding table layout.
Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-4680) have been fixed in this .NET update and in this Java update.
