What's New in this Release?
The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for .NET & Java (13.3.0) has been released. This month’s release includes a new save format for greater fidelity when saving a document as HTML and improvements to the API. This month’s release contains a brand new save format: HtmlFixed. The HtmlFixed format provides the ability to render a document to HTML while preserving almost all formatting and structure found in the original input document. This is a great development as traditionally Word to HTML conversion does not yield a result that looks exactly like the original document, this is not caused by any issue with the way Aspose.Words converts Word documents to HTML, but is to be expected as due to the differences of the two formats. Not all elements in Word documents can be directly represented in an HTML document and thus these elements may be distorted or removed. Use the newly added ExtrusionEnabled and ShadowEnabled properties on Shape class to detect whether a shape is formatted as 3D (extrusion) or with a shadow. Several fixed paged formats display headings and bookmarks in a tree based display for easy access, for example, the navigation panel found with most PDF viewers. In this release the API to work with outline levels has been improved, an introduction of the standard OutlineOptions class replaces the individual members which were previously used to set outline levels for each SaveOptions class. In addition to this, through the use of the new BookmarksOutlineLevelCollection class you can now set the outline level of individual bookmarks.
