XPS to PDF conversion will result in timeout

Converting large documents from XPS to PDF is not possible.
It takes too much time and sometimes the document is only partly converted.
The PDF will be blown up to extreme large file sizes.
XPS conversion is important because it is currently the only output format supported by (Microsoft) Universal Print API.
You can simply test the sample document on the Aspose conversion site as well. https://products.aspose.app/page/conversion/xps-to-pdf

Thanks for your reply, I see that there are similar tickets raised before but not solved yet.
eg; Convert XPS to PDF using Aspose.PDF for .NET - Large output PDF file size

I hope this can be given some priority, as mentioned this feature has become very important with the release of Microsoft Universal Print.

I understand your reasoning, but if basic features (in this case XPS to PDF conversion) don’t work, I think that’s a major bug that should normally be given a higher priority.
