Hi Igor,

Thanks for your inquiry. After an initial test with Aspose.Words for .NET 16.6.0 over Windows 10, I was unable to reproduce this issue on my side (see attached 16.6.0.pdf). Please make sure that the following fonts are installed on your machine:

  • Calibri
  • Times New Roman
  • GE SS Text Bold
  • Arial

Best regards,


I opened your generated PDF, but if you can notice, the Arabic font in the generated PDF if not “GE SS Text Bold”. It is same as below Arial. If you can open my PDF, you can notice that the Arabic bold text with black color is with “GE SS Text Bold” font and looks different from your’s. Also you can check the source Word file that the text looks different.

I have attached print screen with comparison and info
