Problem With Aspose.Words unable to convert file created by Aspose.Words

We have a process where a user can upload a document, we then present in an browser based rich text editor so that they may modify the uploaded document. We then save the html into a word document, and then re-open the word document so that we can convert it to plain text. However, it appears that for one reason or another in some instances the word document created from the saved html causes aspose.words to throw the following exception:


Exception Message: Length cannot be less than zero.
Parameter name: length

I’ve attached a file that was created from a doc file that was then converted to HTML that was then saved as a doc file that causes the above exception when attempting to save it as plaintext.

The original source file successfully saves as plaintext.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Hello

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. I cannot reproduce the problem on my side using the latest version of Aspose.Words (9.7.0).

You can download the latest version from here:

http://www.aspose.com/community/files/51/.net-components/aspose.words-for-.net/category1188.aspx

Best regards,

I can reproduce the problem with 9.7.

It appears it’s because of the PreserveTableLayout setting on the TxtSaveOptions. Our code:

Document doc = new Document(filename);
Aspose.Words.Saving.TxtSaveOptions options = new Aspose.Words.Saving.TxtSaveOptions();
//options.PrettyFormat = true;
options.PreserveTableLayout = true;

doc.Save(temppath, options);

If I disable PreserveTableLayout it behaves properly. If I enable it, it fails with the exception in the previous post. (I disabled PrettyFormat during the process to help isolate the problem.)
