When converting from Word to PDF- my form Fields become readonly

Hello, We want to convert MS-Word documents generated by us. They are form documents with all kind of fields but when converting from Word to PDF, our form Fields become readonly and Only checkboxes works properly. We use Aspose Words

After doing many tries to make the PDF Fields edtable I discovered that just only opening and saving with Aspose.Pdf.Kit, the generated PDF with Aspose.Words becomes editable!!

Thanks for your inquiry. Please just try setting IsPreserveFormFields to True. Please try using the following code to achieve what you need:

// Open source document
Document doc = new Document("in.doc");
PdfSaveOptions opt = new PdfSaveOptions();
// Set IsPreserveFormFields to true
opt.PreserveFormFields = true;
doc.Save("out.pdf", opt);

Best regards,

I tried that too. The Fields are preserved into the generated PDF but they are read only and the ComboBoxes do not show anything. Only CheckBoxes works fine



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

Best regards,

This is the RAR document. The First Word document was generated with Save() and the Second was generated throght Save(streamObj,PdfOptionsObject) and the stream to a File without proccesing.
