Convert DocX to PDF (Aspose)

Overview

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.

Notes:

  • 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.

  • This plugin has much better conversion from DOCX to PDF than Dynamic Document Generation and Advanced Document Templating.

    It is able to hold the formatting almost 1 to 1 from the DOCX template, which I needed because I had to have a watermark on the PDF and none of the other plugins seemed to be able to do it without formatting issues of some kind. The PDF Watermark plugin didn't work since just puts the watermark not in the center and has no settings.

    To try the plugin without actually buying the license, you must go to https://purchase.aspose.com/, add only Aspose.Words for Java to to the cart, fill the contact info and hit "get temporary license" on the Contact Info screen.

    The license will be attached to the email they send you, which you will need to swap into the constant that is fed into the node.
