The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for .NET & Java (11.0.0) has been released. This new release supports rendering of comments in Microsoft Word to fixed-page formats such as PDF. The output is similar to how Microsoft Word renders comments to formats like PDF. There were a large number of requests from our customers to find a way to decrease the size of rendered PDF documents. The latest version of Aspose.Words introduces new options which allow you to choose how fonts are exported to PDF, either by using standard core PDF fonts or system installed fonts instead of embedding them into the document. Using either one of these options results in significant reduction in the file size of PDFs generated using Aspose.Words. Note that these options are mutually exclusive so you should choose only one at a time to use for your particular needs. Previous versions of Aspose.Words use standard GDI+ objects for rendering compound (multiline) lines. This worked well when rendering directly to image, but such document formats as PDF and XPS have no explicit support for compound lines. The only way to render such lines types to these formats is to draw them as a set of normal lines. This technique has been implemented and is now available in the latest version of Aspose.Words. The list of most notable new and improved features in this release are listed below
• New public element in the Model: AbsolutePositionTab support for DOCX and RTF provided.
• Linked textboxes supported in DOC, DOCX, WML.
