Which is best for PDF?

I’m currently evaluating Aspose.Words and Aspose.PDF, and I need to have PDF format output from mail-merging. Version 6 of Aspose.Words has a new rendering engine, which means it can provide direct output as PDF, although as it’s only version 1.0.0 it is apparently still under development.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

My question is which is the best to use for PDF output? Aspose.PDF must already have a rendering engine, so why does Aspose.Words need a new one? Can Aspose.PDF do things that Aspose.Words cannot, or is it the other way round?


Dear Mike,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

If you use Aspose.Words + Aspose.Pdf to convert Word to Pdf, the page rendering engine is in Aspose.Pdf. The latest version of Aspose.Words use it own page rendering engine to convert Word to PDF. I can't say which is best. The solution of Aspose.Words + Aspose.Pdf is more mature but you need to purchase both products. You can evaluate both solutions to see which one is good for you.
