Aspose.Words Features Missing in NPOI
As already described in previous articles, there are operations with documents that are faster and more conveniently to perform using Aspose.Words than NPOI. But there are also operations that are not provided by NPOI (HWPF and XWPF). 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 NPOI (HWPF and XWPF):
|Corresponding documentation article or section
|Loading and saving documents in formats other than Microsoft Word.
As a result, you can perform conversion between all popular document formats. For example, Word to PDF, HTML to Markdown, DOCX to JPG, PDF to Word, Image to PDF, and others
|The Create or Load a Document section
The Save a Document section
The Convert a Document section
|The Mail Merge and Reporting section
|The ”Rendering” section
