Save to XPS


Are there any plans to provide a function in Aspose.Words to save a .doc file as an XPS file?

I haven't thought this all the way through, but it appears that this would be the holy grail for our situation, as we use Aspose to generate MS-Word compatible quotes, but still have to instantiate Word to print (we have a single button generate and print feature in our application). The print is done from our web server using a networked printer at one of our remote sites.

Seems like we could take Word completely out of the picture (on the server at least) if we could save the .doc as .xps and send the .xps to the printer using plain old .net code (PrintQueue.AddPrintJob())

Yes. The rendering feature we are working on will draw to screen, images, print, pdf and xps and expor to any format where a concept of a "page" exists.

Just don't ask when...


Cool - looking forward to getting this. Thanks, Scott

Thank you for your inquiry.

XPS is planned but definitely not soon.

As an alternative solution you can suggest using Aspose.Words.Viewer. It is a part of Aspose.Words but currently is in beta state. Let us know if you cave any other questions or proposals.
