Stroke size of bold Japanese Unicode font


When rendering a PDF-file from a Word-document with a bold Japanese unicode font.
The stroke width on Japanese fonts in bold (e.g.
MS Mincho, MS Gothic) varies by the font size. Sometimes it is readable, most
time it’s not and thus not usable for Japanese documents. The attached example shows
four lines including some unreadable characters (red).

This is our code:

Document doc = new Document(inFilePath.toString());
PdfSaveOptions saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();
saveOptions.setFontEmbeddingMode(PdfFontEmbeddingMode.EMBED_ALL);, saveOptions);

Is there a way to change the bold-stroke width with the current API ?

Thank you for your time!

Hi there,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the same behavior as MS Word does. If you convert your document to Pdf using MS Word, you will get the same output.

Dear Tahir,

We have compared the result from Aspose with the result from MS Word.
The rendering of the Japanese fonts are indeed conform and identical, as good as it gets.

I’ll consider this issue closed.
I would like to thank you for your time and research !
