Hi Rathika,

Thanks for using our products.

Can you please share the source PDF file so that we can test the scenario at our end. We are really sorry for this inconvenience.

Thanks for your response. this is happening for all the pdf.
source pdf is attached

Hi Rathika,

Thanks for sharing the resource PDF document.

I have tested the scenario using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java 4.5.0 and as per my observations, the output XPS file generated with PdfViewer seems identical to source PDF file. I am unable to notice any formatting difference. Can you please try using v4.5.0.

For your reference, I have also attached the resultant XPS generated over my end.

PS, I have also used Adobe PDF to print the file into PDF format and as per my observations, the resultant PDF has correct formatting.

it worked with latest pdf kit jar.

Thank you so much .

but another problem , we have printer which is duplex, wanted to print document one side

I tried this option, in the above code. but didn’t worked.

PrintRequestAttributeSet attributes = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();

//creates the printDialog.
/boolean printFile = printJob.printDialog();
if (printFile)
