Strange list problem

I have a list in a document, like:

  • First
  • Second
  • Third
If I change the formatting of the bullets to an image, then back to normal bullets, I seem to get an extra bullet point with the image in it when I convert to PDF.

I’ve attached the input doc, and the output doc, xml and pdf.

The xml shows the line:
<Image File=“C:\Documents and
Type=“png FixWidth=“11.25
=“11.25 />

The code for the conversion is:
Document doc = new Document(@“C:\test_in.doc”);
saveToPDF(doc, @“c:\test_out.pdf”);

private void saveToPDF(Document doc, string outputFilename)

//Save the document in Aspose.Pdf.Xml format into a memory stream.
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
doc.Save(stream, SaveFormat.FormatAsposePdf);

//Seek to the beginning so it can be read by XmlDocument.
stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

//Load the document into an XmlDocument
XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();

//Load the XML document into Aspose.Pdf
Aspose.Pdf.Pdf pdf = new Aspose.Pdf.Pdf();

//Make sure the images that were saved by Aspose.Words into Windows temporary
//folder are automatically deleted by Aspose.Pdf when they are no longer needed.
pdf.IsImagesInXmlDeleteNeeded = false;
pdf.BindXML(xmlDoc, null);

//*** Aspose.Pdf font cache, see comments below.
pdf.IsTruetypeFontMapCached = false;

//Now produce the PDF file.

Thanks for considering Aspose.

This strange problem has been reproduced on my machine. I will inform our developers to investigate and fix it up ASAP.

I found that if I save the document to HTML instead of PDF, I get the same problem.
So maybe this is a problem with Aspose.Words?

Thanks for considering Aspose.

You are correct. We will inform Aspose.Words team to get it fixed ASAP.

Any news on solutions to this problem?

The problem is with the bullet picture defined for document lists. Looks like it is treated incorrectly by Aspose.Words now. BTW the problem exists in the primary document (test_in.doc) too.

I have logged this problem to our defect base as issue #1122. We will try to fix it in the next hotfix which will be published in several weeks.

Best regards,

We have released a new version of Aspose.Words that contains a fix for your issue.

issue #1122 DOC The list bullet picture defined for lists is incorrectly interpreted as shape inside a paragraph.

The new version of Aspose.Words is available for download from here.

Best regards.
