Positioning in complex structures (2)



Here is a « bug » during the conversion from Word to PDF.

Inside complex structures such as tables and SDT the rendering and/or positioning of components is not in line between Word and PDF.

(In attached files you have the word and the pdf)

Please can you tell me if this is a bug or if there is something to do in the code to fix the problem?

kind regards


Hi Rabih,

Thanks for your inquiry. After an initial test with Aspose.Words for .NET 16.3.0, I was unable to reproduce this issue on my side (please see attached 16.3.0.pdf). I would suggest you please upgrade to the latest version of Aspose.Words. You can download it from the following link. I hope, this helps.

Best regards,



Please take a look at the attached picture to see the difference between the DOCX and the PDF…

There is an additional space in the PDF version.

Any idea?


Hi Rabih,

Thanks for your inquiry. This is because your “TestCase005_Result.pdf” was generated using Aspose.Words for .NET 16.2.0. Upgrading to Aspose.Words 16.3.0 should resolve this issue on your end.

Best regards,



Sorry the last sample was in 16.2 you are right.

I generared it with the 16.3 and unfortunately I have the same issue. Please find as attached files the Word and the PDF. As you can see the PDF properties show that the version is 16.3

Best regards,
