Saving cross references as html links

Hi I notice Aspose Words 9.7 .NET does not save cross references as html links (cross ref text) when saving documents as html. Is it a bug in Aspose? Is there any work around code?

in aspose html it’s just XX we need XX where REF***** is correct reference that is set for that text in MS Word doc

Internally in aspose words I see REF********* in text sections where you have cross references in MS Word doc but aspose just does not create tags in html

Any help or advice would be appreciated.



Hi Brian,

Thanks for your request. You can easily solve this problem by replacing REF fields with HYPERLINK fields. You can try using the same technique as suggested here:


Hope this could help you.

Thanks Alexey, I tried your code and it works :slight_smile:
