Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 17.7. 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.

WORDSNET-6118 - Rendering Word Document to PCL format Supported

New saving format is introduced - PCL (Printer Command Language). Aspose.Words can save documents to PCL 6 (PCL 6 Enhanced or PCL XL) format.

New value was added to enum SaveFormat:

Example of how to save document to PCL:

PclSaveOptions has following public options and methods:

There is one major feature of PCL that is unsupported in current version of Aspose.Words i.e. custom fonts. It is rather big and complex problem, but we will implement this feature in future.

WORDSNET-14190 - Make the Title of the Generated Documents show up in Title Bar

New property DisplayDocTitle was added to PdfSaveOptions to control behavior of how document's title is presented in output PDF document:

WORDSNET-15504 -  Shape.AspectRatioLocked Default Value was Changed for Shapes Inserted through the DocumentBuilder.InsertImage Method.

Shape.AspectRatioLocked default value was changed for shapes inserted through the DocumentBuilder.InsertImage method. Now, to mimic MS Word behavior this value is "true" for ShapeType.Image upon inserting image through the DocumentBuilder or through the Model.


WORDSNET-14504 and WORDSNET-14803 - Changed Importing Behavior of Lists

Previously, list definitions were copied with a new identifier while importing. Now Aspose.Words reuses identical list definitions in the destination. Equality of list definitions in the source and destination is determined by their identifiers. Also Aspose.Words preserves list definition identifiers from the source when equal list definition cannot be found in the destination. This is how MS Word behaves.
