Returned Table and Cell padding values are incorrect


We’re currently having an issue regarding the returned values for the Table and Cell padding properties, which are 0 instead of actual values displayed by MS Word… We tested using the latest version of Aspose.Words (version
The following code reproduces the issue; it displays the value 0 for all properties instead of the actual values (10 for top, 20 for bottom, 30 for left and 40 for right padding):

var filePath = @“testMargins.docx”;
var doc = new Document(filePath);
var table = doc.FirstSection.Body.Tables[0];

Console.WriteLine(“Table padding:”);

Console.WriteLine(“Top Left Cell padding:”);
var cell = table.FirstRow.FirstCell;

Please check the attached test file and screenshots to reproduce the issue.

Thank you!

Hi Mihai,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Unfortunately, your issue is not resolved yet. Our development team has completed the analysis of this issue and the root cause has been identified. However, the implementation of the fix to this issue has been postponed till a later date. We will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue is resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The problem occurs because these attributes are specified through the table style. You will be able to get them using table style when accessing information of Table Styles will be available in Aspose.Words API. Moreover, as a temporary workaround, please convert formatting specified in table styles into direct formatting on tables in the document by using the Document.ExpandTableStylesToDirectFormatting Method . I hope, this helps.

Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-9592) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
