Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 17.4. 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.

Added an Interface to Flexibly Format Field Result

WORDSNET-14944 has been resolved.

We have added an interface allowing to implement a custom formatting of field's result. The original request was about addiing a feature to remove spaces between sign and digits during mail merge. However, we decided to implement a more generic and flexible solution because our API is already overwhelmed with different specific properties.

Added Feature to Set Horizontal and Vertical Resolution of Output Image

Previously it was one property Resolution that set both vertical and horizontal resolution to the same values.
Now new public properties HorizontalResolution and VerticalResolution are added into the ImageSaveOptions class:

Please note, that Resolution property became write-only:
