Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.
It is not possible to open/save the Word document in a file system using their path in our portable platforms (ASP.NET Core and Xamarin) since file accessing various across different targets (Operating System/ platform). So, we have provided WordDocument
constructors only with stream overloads.
To load/open a Word document, the document must be an embedded resource in your application. By using Xamarin.Forms DependencyService, the memory stream can be saved a storage file with respective to their platforms (Windows, Android, iOS). Please find our UG documentation for saving a PDF document as storage file in all Xamarin.Forms platforms below.
The code example to perform open and save of a Word document in Xamarin platform is available in following link.
