Aspose.Words Features Missing in Open XML SDK
As already described in previous articles, there are operations with documents that are faster and more conveniently to perform using Aspose.Words than Open XML SDK. But there are also operations that are not provided by OpenXML. You can try to achieve the desired result using auxiliary tools and options, but even if successful, it will be quite expensive.
The following table contains some of the popular features supported by Aspose.Words and missed in Open XML SDK:
|Aspose.Words feature||Corresponding documentation article or section|
|Convert between different document formats. For example, Word to PDF, HTML to Markdown, DOCX to JPG, PDF to Word, Image to PDF, and others||The “Convert a Document” section|
|Mail Merge||The ”Mail Merge and Reporting” section|
|Rendering||The ”Rendering” section|
|Print a document||The ”Printing a Document Programmatically or Using Dialogs” article|
|Join multiple documents, including combine formatting of documents when importing content||The “Insert and Append Documents” article|
|Find and Replace||The “Find and Replace” article|
|Updating fields||The “Working with Fields” section|
|Manage a Table of Content (TOC)||The “Working with Table of Contents” article|
|Manipulate form fields||The “Working with Form Fields” article|
|Manipulate tables||The “Working with Tables” section|
The table is not complete, so you can check our documentation for the feature you are interested in.
