Output of converted word to pdf file is bad

We r evaluating the aspose.word,pdf,cell for our requirement of coverting word& excel files to pdf on the fly throu a component integrated in asp.net (2.0) application. I have converted a word file to pdf using aspose. But the output of pdf file is very bad. The position of images have gone haywire. Tables of document have lost their text. Table of content (index of document ) has lost data inbetween, instead dotts are printed. Is their any way to improve the quality of output.

Hello.

Thank you for the criticism. Would you send us one or more documents among with corresponding PDF-s so we could see what is going wrong? What version of Aspose.Words and other components are you using?

Hi,

Word to Pdf: We are working to improve the drawing objects in Aspose.Pdf. But we might need two or three weeks.

Excel to Pdf: If you use the print preview of Excel you can get almost the same result. If you are not satisfied please reported your problem to the Aspose.Cells team.

For Xls2Pdf feature, some pages are not rendered perfectly. We will work to make them better. If you have any further questions about this feature. Please post them on http://www.aspose.com/Community/Forums/19/ShowForum.aspx, Aspose.Cells team will support you quickly.

Hello.

I can distinguish several issues with the document:

1. PDF doesn't allocate enough vertical space for figures.

Autoshapes on pages 2 and 3 are overlapped by the next paragraphs.

The problem is that the group shapes are positioned inline. Currently it is not supported by Aspose.Pdf. Therefore we have to output shapes floating and text overlaps shapes. We can fix this only when Aspose.Pdf supports that type of placement.

Workaround: Position the shape Above or Below text floating and type a few empty paragraph breaks. That’s the best can be done for now.

2. All ellipses became circles on page 2.

Aspose.Pdf doesn’t support ellipses. So Aspose.Words export them as circles. Will be fixed when it is supported.

3. Arrows are rendered as lines without proper endings (page 2).

Same as (2). Aspose.Pdf doesn’t support arrows.

4. Arrows’ coordinates don't correspond to the shapes they are intended to connect. Occurs on page 2 and 3.

This is Aspose.Words issue. We will fix it. Maybe drawing them in different order could help but I don’t know any steady workaround.

5. On page 3 not all boxes are drawn. “Spiderman” and “Superman” are absent.

This happens because “Spiderman” and “Superman” are overlapped by another figure with screenshot which follows the chart with boxes. I added several paragraph breaks and they appeared. This is the consequence of positioning problem (1).

6. Text inside autoshapes is shifted. It is best seen on the right-top shape on page 2.

This is Aspose.Words issue.

New issues created:

For (1) and (5) issue #3229

For (2) issue #3230

For (3) issue #3231

For (4) issue #3232

For (6) issue #3233
