I've been surfing the internet to look for .NET tools to convert word to pdf for a long time. Now, Apose.Word + Aspose.PDF is the best way as far as I could find.
I've tested a number of docs with tables, text, images...etc and it works nicely. However, I've found one problem; and it's a big problem to my project requirements.... That is, if the Word document contains autoshapes AND text, the autoshapes in the converted pdf will have problems in positioning! The shape objects will overlap with the text!
However, if the document only contains autoshapes but no text, then it seems to be nice, without positioning problem
http://www.herbertho.com/temp/autoshapes_text.doc (will have problem)
http://www.herbertho.com/temp/shape_only.doc (has no problem)
Truly I'm much appreciated at the great work by Aspoe.Word. However.. My project has a requirement that needs to convert doc to pdf... and it'll be a BIG problem..
If any guys could point out any suggestion, I'd give many many .... many thanks and surely I'd purchase it!!
