Word documents with control characters on Samsung Galaxy devices


We are using a version of Aspose.Words from 2013

Our application works fine on iOS but on Samsung Galaxy tablets special characters are displayed as symbols, so all the tabs, carriage returns, tables etc.

I think this might have been fixed in 2014, the release notes talk about control characters but not exactly what the problem was with them or what platform is was fixed on.

Could anyone confirm this is resolved in the latest version before I upgrade my licence?


Hi there,

Thanks for your inquiry. I suggest you please ask for temporary license from here and use latest version of Aspose.Words for Android 1.12.

We have now divided the library into following two archives. For example:

  • aspose-words-1.12-android-jdk15.jar: The first one includes public API and its auxiliary methods.
  • aspose-words-1.12-libs-android-jdk15.apk: The second one includes third party jars, basic classes and resources.

include Aspose.Words for Android into the project you should place
“aspose-words-1.12-android-jdk15.jar” in the folder “libs” of your
project, and the archive “aspose-words-1.12-libs-android-jdk15.apk” into
the folder “assets”. After that you need to indicate in
“AndroidManifest.xml” file that you are going to use AsposeWords
application as the basic one. Please see the following markup:


the problem still remains, please attach your input Word document along with code example here
for testing. I will investigate the issue on my side and provide you
more information.
