This plugin contains a smart service to convert .docx documents to PDF using Aspose Libraries with support for custom fonts and optionally encrypt the final PDF document. It will also maintain the PDF structure for 508 compliance as well as compress the file to maintain a low file size.
Note: An Aspose JAVA Words license is required and must be provided to the smart service in order for it to work accordingly.
Original plugin creation credit goes to Shaun Freeman.
I believe the plugin should convert in the layout of your word document.
Can you try checking your word layout and updating it
Hi, thanks for the information, able to achieve what i was looking for.
As this smart service covert docx to pdf in letter but i want pdf in A4 size is it possible?
I am using right now the version 21.2 of Appian, and the plugin is compatible until the version 20.2.... so I am not very confident about this
Anyway, I will try what you have said to me. Thank you
Hi Shaun Freeman,
Can you tell me whether the Aspose DocX to PDF plugin converts the word documents into 508 compliant PDFs? If not, are there plans to add the capability of converting into 508 compliant PDFs?
After some testing, I have found that I receive a 99 error code when the Aspose plugin tries to create a document object with the same name with a different extension in the same folder.
Document1.docx in Folder1 -> Document1.pdf in Folder1, this will break
Document1.docx in Folder1 -> Document1.pdf in Folder2, this will work
Document1.docx in Folder1 -> Document1.pdf in Folder2 AND Document1.pdf already exists in Folder2, the document will OVERWRITE the original Document1.pdf that already existed
If possible, I would set the GeneratedDocFolderID to point to a DIFFERENT folder than the one the SourceDocID is in.
Hope this helps!
You can try to rename the class and it works for us.
