Textbox link is lost after re-saving DOCX using .NET

Hi,

I have the attached test .docx document. This document contains two text boxes. I linked the textboxes so when typing text in the first it overflows to the next text box.

We open this document with Aspose.Words (11.2) and only save it.

If I open the document saved with Apose.Words all text has moved to the first textbox and the link between the textboxes is severed.

The code I use is as simple as it gets:

Dim objAsposeDoc As New Aspose.Words.Document("c:\temp\LinkedTextboxes aspose problem.docx")
objAsposeDoc.Save("c:\temp\asposeddoc.docx")

The source document still has linked text boxes, but the asposeddoc.docx is broken.

Note: It works if the document is in .doc format, but we don't want to keep saving .docx documents in .doc format.

Hi,



I’m having this same problem with version 11.9. Is it possible that this issue has re-surfaced?

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please attach your input Word document here for testing? I will investigate the issue on my side and provide you more information.

Hi Tahir, thanks for responding.


I’ve done a little bit more experimenting and attached three documents (all created in Microsoft Word 2010) and their output (converted) documents when saved through the Aspose Document Explorer.

‘Linked text boxes.docx’ contains two linked text boxes and works correctly. ‘Grouped linked text boxes.docx’ is the same document but with the text boxes grouped and it doesn’t work. ‘Complicated document.docx’ is the one I’m really interested in and I can’t get it to work no matter what I do.

Feel free to contact me at the email address in my profile if you want to speak directly.
