I have downloaded the latest Aspose.Words 9.0.0 in order to try out the new TOC update feature. This is a fantastic feature one that we have been waiting for with anticipation, it will certainly also add significant value for our customers.
Presently we build our reporting documents in memory with TOC and then save them in either doc, docx, html or pdf format as per user's requested format.
The TOC update works great for doc, docx, and pdf format.
However I am a little surprised by the result when I save in html format. At present it seems to result in page numbers as per doc/docx which are pointless when the document is a single page.
We had hoped that you would take an approach similar to microsoft. Convert the topics to links that navigate to the relevant section.
I have read the older posts relating to 'generating html with table of contents' as an alternative method of doing this but was hoping that this would somehow be included planned as part of the new TOC feature.
Therefore please confirm that the current behaviour is what you expected when using html format, and advise if there are any plans to improve this current approach. Alternatively can you advise on any better method for produng the MS word type html TOC using the new Apose TOC update feature.
