Word file formatting issue

Hi Team,

I used Aspose.Words to convert html to docx however the word file which is created is rendered differently in word 2013 and 2019 version. How can i convert so that its formatting is not changed as the version of word differs.


Could you please ZIP and attach your input HTML document and Word documents generated by MS Word 2013 and 2019 along with screenshots of issue? We will investigate the issue and provide you more information on it.

You are using Aspose.Words in evaluation mode. Please get the 30 days temporary license and apply it before importing document into Aspose.Words’ DOM. Moreover, please use the latest version of Aspose.Words for .NET 20.9.

We suggest you please use CompatibilityOptions.OptimizeFor method to optimize the document for MS Word 2019.


Please note that Aspose.Words tries to mimic the behavior of MS Word. If you still face problem, please open HTML document in MS Word 2013 and 2019, save it to DOCX file format and attach them here for our reference. We will then provide you more information on this issue.
