Preserve Numeric List with Empty Circle Bullets during Converting DOCX to HTML using Java

Hi Aspose folks!

We are sent these documents, from all over the place, some have bizarre stuff
in them, and we need do automated import for processing, garbage and all.

This one (ordered_lists_with_circle_bullets.docx) shows bullets lists that
are marked in Word as ‘numeric’, but somehow the user was able to apply a
Document Number Format with CIRCLES as the bullets.

We don’t know HOW they did it, or care, but we gotta handle it. :slight_smile:

The HTML coming from Aspose is correctly marked as an ordered list, but the
bullets are numeric, not the empty-circles style. HTML lists do support the
empty-circles style, and we need this document to conver to HTML with the

We don’t actuall care, in this case, whether the list with the empty-circles
is a OL or a UL, it just needs to look right.

Can Aspose.words for Java do this? Or at least can its API provide us a way
to post-process it and detect the circles style, so we can set the HTML list style

Thank you!


Have you also tried the latest (20.4) version of Aspose.Words for Java on your end? In case the problem still remains, please ZIP and upload your input Word document and Aspose.Words generated HTML file showing the undesired behavior here for testing. We will then investigate the issue on our end and provide you more information. Thanks for your cooperation.
