Saving PDF to HTML (split into pages) generates more files than pages

HI, is there a way to have Aspose.PDF generate as many html files as pages (considering that both SplitIntoPages i set to true and FixedLayout is set to true? Alternatively is there a way to have it generate a fixed layout with a separate file for each page?

@bpetrea

Thank you for contacting support.

You can load a PDF document, iterate through each page and convert it to an HTML file; as in the code snippet below:

Document sourcePDF = new Document(@"Test.pdf");
foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Page page in sourcePDF.Pages)
{
    Document newDocument = new Document();
    newDocument.Pages.Add(page);
    newDocument.Save(@"Page_" + page.Number + ".html", SaveFormat.Html);
}

We hope this will be helpful. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

I will try it , thank you. Eventually i want to generate a fixed layout epub and hence i needed the output to be per page

Hi, sorry for bothering but after exporting per page into html i noticed that the links aren’t exported(towards other pdf pages - i still need to check for external ones) . Is this a feature that isn’t supported or am I doing something wrong?

Later edit: Never mind, figured it out, will post it here for future reference:
You need to go through each of the page’s annotations which have GoToActions and change them into GoToURIActions:

                for (int linkCount = list.Count-1; linkCount >=0; linkCount--)
                {
                    LinkAnnotation a = list[linkCount] as LinkAnnotation;
                    
                    // Print the destination URL
                    if (a != null)
                    {
                        if (a.Action.ToString() == "Aspose.Pdf.Annotations.GoToAction")
                        {
                            a.Action = new GoToURIAction("Page_"+  page.Number + ".html");
                        }
                    }
                }

HI, I’m back again (sorry for being a nuissance). I noticed that upon export to html the links are exported wrongfully (while the spans are corectly placed, the destinations are messed up -> in a TOC page 9 points to page 13, page 13 points to page 15, and so on, even though in the pdf are corectly placed.

Is there anything I can do to have the correct order of links ?

Kindest regards,
Bogdan

as for the code used :

            HtmlSaveOptions options = new HtmlSaveOptions();
            options.FixedLayout = true;
            options.SplitIntoPages = false;
            options.SplitCssIntoPages = false;
            options.CompressSvgGraphicsIfAny = false;
            options.RasterImagesSavingMode = HtmlSaveOptions.RasterImagesSavingModes.AsExternalPngFilesReferencedViaSvg;
            options.FontSavingMode = HtmlSaveOptions.FontSavingModes.SaveInAllFormats;
            options.LettersPositioningMethod = HtmlSaveOptions.LettersPositioningMethods.UseEmUnitsAndCompensationOfRoundingErrorsInCss;
            options.HtmlMarkupGenerationMode = HtmlSaveOptions.HtmlMarkupGenerationModes.WriteAllHtml;
            options.PreventGlyphsGrouping = false;
            options.RemoveEmptyAreasOnTopAndBottom = false;
            options.PagesFlowTypeDependsOnViewersScreenSize = false;
            options.UseZOrder = true;
            options.SaveTransparentTexts = false;
            options.SaveShadowedTextsAsTransparentTexts = false;

            foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Page page in doc.Pages)
            {
                     Document newDocument = new Document();
                     newDocument.Pages.Add(page);
                     newDocument.Save(dirName + @"\Page_" + pageNumber + ".pdf",SaveFormat.Pdf); //this was used to generate the attached pdf, in order to see if the links are ok in the pdf page
                     newDocument.Save(dirName + @"\Page_" + pageNumber + ".html", options);
            }

As for the html file contents, (though the image paths are modified after with another script - if you think necessarily i can generate an intermediary file with the raw output from Aspose.PDF):
