Making Changes after a Conversion from Word to PDF
A very common use for Aspose.Pdf is the conversion of Word Documents to PDF. However, from time to time one may have a need to make further changes to a document after such a conversion. For example, suppose you would like to import the headings from a Word document and then convert them to bookmarks in the resulting PDF. How would you achieve that? Just simply do as follows…
Aspose.Pdf.Pdf pdf = new Aspose.Pdf.Pdf();
//Object xmlDoc contains all contents from original word document in XML format defined in Aspose.PDF
//Before saving, to add bookmarks from headings.
pdf.IsBookmarked = true;
foreach(Aspose.Pdf.Section sec in pdf.Sections)
foreach(Aspose.Pdf.Paragraph para in sec.Paragraphs)
if(para is Heading)
Heading h = para as Heading;
h.IsInList = true;
Dim pdf As Aspose.Pdf.Pdf = New Aspose.Pdf.Pdf()
‘Object xmlDoc contains all contents from original word document in XML format defined in Aspose.PDF
‘Before saving, to add bookmarks from headings.
pdf.IsBookmarked = True
Dim sec As Aspose.Pdf.Section
For Each sec In pdf.Sections
Dim para As Aspose.Pdf.Paragraph
For Each para In sec.Paragraphs
If TypeOf para Is Heading Then
Dim h As Heading = para as Heading
h.IsInList = True
With that is mind you can easily see that when doing a conversion from any supported format to PDF, Aspose.Pdf provides you an easy yet powerful API for further modification.
