We are using iSED QuickPDF to print PDF files. Seems that iSED QuickPDF does not support printing png images containing an indexed palette of colors.
We converted to pdf a Word document containing jpg and gif images (using Aspose.Pdf). The call to Aspose.Word.Document.Save(path, Aspose.Word.SaveFormat.FormatAsposePdf) generated a xml file along with a jpeg file for each jpg image and a png (with an indexed palette of colors) file for each gif image in the Word document. Do you think it would be possible to specify in Aspose.Word object model how to save intermediate png images generated by the call to Aspose.Word.Document.Save(path, Aspose.Word.SaveFormat.FormatAsposePdf). Would it be possible to create those intermediate png files using RGB format without an indexed palette of colors?
P.D. Do you have any news about Aspose.Word print functionality?
Thank you for considering Aspose.
Although I cannot guarantee that such the option will be provided anytime soon, I have added it as a feature request. With respect to your question about Aspose.Word printing - no significant news actually, but we are extensively working on the viewer and making some considerable progress.
We are happy to tell you that the new Rendering Engine has replaced the “old Viewer Beta”. The Rendering Engine can print, save as images or draw onto .NET Graphics object any document page.
Please see Aspose.Words documentation to learn more about new features.
In additional, new Rendering engine allows you to convert Word document to PDF directly (without using Aspose.Pdf).
