Table Position is Changed | DOCX to TIFF Conversion using .NET

There is an issue with the alignment of the addresses at the top of a letter when converting to TIF from docx. Discharge_Letter.docx (37.8 KB)
This example document was formatted correctly in versions prior to 19.4 and the latest version does not resolve the issue.


We have tested the scenario and managed to reproduce the same issue at our side. For the sake of correction, we have logged this problem in our issue tracking system as WORDSNET-22584. You will be notified via this forum thread once this issue is resolved.

We apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi, is there any update on this ticket at all please?

@philipcrossland We have completed analyzing the issue. The problem here is that Aspose.Words does not properly handle floating table positioning and overlap logic in compatibility mode.

The document has two floating tables next to each other. One to the left has preferred width specified and one to the right has automatic width. Aspose.Words considers tables overlapping and moves one below the other whereas MS Word positions them next to each other by adjusting width of the right table. If re-saved in 2013 mode MS Word starts to move tables like Aspose.Words does and does not adjust width of right table.
The developer responsible for table layout logic is currently busy on overall table layout logic rework. This rework might affect rendering of your document too. So the issue is currently postponed.
