Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, this issue is not resolved yet. The implementation of the fix to this issue is postponed till a later date and we cannot push it into production right now because there are many other important issues we have to work on. Rest assured, we will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue is resolved. We apologize for your inconvenience.
This behavior is by design. As macros cannot be preserved when converting to many formats, we chose not to convert documents with macros at all. In Aspose.Words for .NET, macros must be removed explicitly before saving to a format that does not support macros.
However, we may consider adding an option to the UI to remove macros in future. But, it will become a bit complicated when a folder or several documents are converted at once
and the option should probably be supported by the workflow
as well. Another approach is to remove macros silently if they cannot be preserved in the destination format. Maybe it is even a better option as it does not affect workflow support, and in the UI we can think of providing a message after macros were removed. Please let us know of your opinion on this to help our development team investigate the best possible way to fix this issue.
