When will DocToPdfConverter be available on .NET Core?
We really need it for a project where mail merge is done from word files and need to be converted to PDF.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Essential DocIO uses the System.Drawing and GDI functionality for Word to PDF conversion. Due to the unavailability of this functionality in ASP.NET Core platform, currently Essential DocIO does not have support for Word to PDF and Word to Image conversion in ASP.NET Core. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. At this moment, we cannot provide any concrete timeline for this feature. We request you to visit our website periodically for feature related updates.

Alternatively, service can be used to convert Word document as PDF and then that service can be referred in the ASP.NET Core application.

We have prepared a sample to perform simple Mail merge and convert the Word document to PDF using ASP.NET Web API as service with ASP.NET Core application.
Steps to follow:
1. Run the ASP.NET Web API service application.
2. Run the ASP.NET Core Web application which referring the service link on it.

Please find the samples from below link, and let us know if this helps you.
