Word to pdf Arabic format is not converted properly on Linux

Dears,

Using (aspose-words-21.6) to convert word file that contains Arabic letters to pdf file, It doesn’t view the Arabic format properly after the conversion on Linux server (on windows server working properly).

Please check the attached 2 files which are word file before conversion and pdf file after conversion.
aspose arabic letters format.pdf (30.8 KB)
check aspose arabic letters format .docx (12.1 KB)

Thanks in advance

@MohamadFardoun

You need to enable open type feature as shown below to get the desired output.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "check aspose arabic letters format .docx");
doc.getLayoutOptions().setTextShaperFactory(com.aspose.words.shaping.harfbuzz.HarfBuzzTextShaperFactory.getInstance());
doc.save(MyDir + "21.6.pdf");

Please refer to the following article.

If you still face problem, please ZIP and attach the PDF file generated by latest version of Aspose.Words for Java i.e. 21.6. We will investigate the issue and provide you more information on it.

@MohamadFardoun

Please use the latest version of Aspose.Words for Java 21.7, download ‘aspose-words-21.7-shaping-harfbuzz-plugin.jar’ and add it to your Java application to avoid this issue.

Please read the following article about installation of Aspose.Words for Java.

@tahir.manzoor

I used Aspose.words for java 21.7 and aspose-words-21.7-shaping-harfbuzz-plugin.jar and I’m still getting the same error

Thanks

@MohamadFardoun

We are investigating this issue and will get back to you soon.

@MohamadFardoun

We have tested the scenario using the latest version of Aspose.Words for Java 21.7 at Ubuntu and have not faced any exception. Please check the attached output PDF. 21.7.java.linux.pdf (29.6 KB)

Please remove all old Aspose.Words jar files from your application, install only latest version of Aspose.Words for Java, clean and build your application. Hope this helps you.

In case you are using different document, please ZIP and attach it here for testing.

I still get the same error even after deleting the old jars, note that i’m using Oracle Linux, not Ubuntu
