Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 17.1.0. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in Aspose.Words which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as a regression and modifies existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.

SaveOptions.MemoryOptimization Property Added

When dealing with very large and complex documents Aspose.Words sometimes had problems during saving resulting in out of memory exceptions, disk swapping and generally failures.

We've introduced an option to optimize memory consumption during these scenarios. When set to true it will improve document memory footprint but will add extra time to processing. This optimization is only applied during save operation.

Usage Example:

FrameFormat Class for getting Frame related Properties of a Paragraph Added

Available to API users as Paragraph.FrameFormat. This class exposes all frame properties of paragraph in "readonly" mode

WORDSNET-13482 - Feature to Insert Online Video Added

Starting from 17.1.0 Version, Aspose.Words supports inserting online video into the document.

Two overloads of InsertOnlineVideo method were introduced in DocumentBuilder class.

The first one works with the most popular video resources and takes the URL to the video as parameter.

Please see the following example:

Simple insertion of online video from the following resources is supported:

https://www.youtube.com/

- https://vimeo.com/

The second overload works with all other video resources and takes embed Html code as parameter:

Please see the following example:

The Html code for embedding video can vary between providers, consult your corresponding provider of choice for details.

Please note: The document will be automatically optimized for MS Word 2013 to show video.

WORDSNET-14405 - TxtSaveOptions.ForcePageBreaks Property Added 

New public property ForcePageBreaks is added into the TxtSaveOptions class:

The property affects only page breaks that are inserted explicitly into a document. It is not related to page breaks that MS Word automatically inserts at the end of each page.
