Word to PDF: NullReferenceException


I'm trying to convert an word document to PDF. But during the convert process a NullReferenceException occurred. I'm just open and save the document:

Document doc2pdf = new Document(@"c:\...\TestDoc.docx");
doc2pdf.Save(@"C:\...\TestDoc.pdf", SaveFormat.Pdf);

You can reproduce the exception with the attached document.

Exception details:

I'm using ASPOSE.Words for .NET Version


Thank you for your inquiry. I managed to reproduce the problem on my side. Your request has been added to our database of defects. Once the bug is fixed you will be notified immediately.

Just wanted to mention that you are using an older version of our product. The current version You can download it here: http://www.aspose.com/community/files/51/.net-components/aspose.words-for-.net/category1188.aspx

But please note that I have reproduced your problem on it. It does not throw such an exception as you have on 9.5, but the picture does not appear in the document.

Hi Aspose,

Why the picture is disappear? Is there any issue? I have same issue with this image.
Please advise.

Hi Kaline,

Thanks for your request. I just answered your question here:

Best regards,


Unfortunately, the issue mentioned above is not resolved yet. The image in your document is actually OOXML chart, unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not support rendering of such charts at the moment. Our developers are working on this feature. Hopefully it will be available in a month or two. We will keep you informed and let you know once this feature is implemented.

Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-4494) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
