Hi, ISSUE: ====== Want to convert a Microsoft Word document to PDF. DETAILS: ======== We are able to setup all properties and formatting at the page, section and paragraph level. PROBLEM ANALYSIS: ================= The Word document has a columnar layout based on sections. When we want to create columns in PDF sections, the exception created is that - "functionality is not supported". Seems comprehensive assuming, the API does not have it implemented although without columns the conversion happens successfully. We have already bought Essential PDF API package. Further, we wish to buy the Essential DOCIO and Essential DLS package immediately. Just for the column functionality our entire business logic fails. Please suggest a solution/approach as soon as possible. WE NEED HELP !!! We are using the Syncfusion.DLS, Syncfusion.DOCIO.DLS, Syncfusion.PDF.DLS namespaces. Thanks and Regards, William Samson Daniel

Hi William, Thanks for your feedback on this issue. Yes, this is a known limitation of the preview version of DOC to PDF that ships with version 4.1 of essential studio. However we are already working on this issue and expect to have a version of DOC to PDF that supports Multi column documents in the next couple of days. Please note that Essential DocIO and the DLS object model of Essential PDF are still in their pre-release stages but we would like to work with you to and try our best to meet all your requirements converting DOC files to PDF. Best regards, Stephen. >Hi, > >ISSUE: >====== >Want to convert a Microsoft Word document to PDF. > >DETAILS: >======== >We are able to setup all properties and formatting at the page, section and paragraph level. > >PROBLEM ANALYSIS: >================= >The Word document has a columnar layout based on sections.

Hi Stephen, Thank you so much for this. I am a Technical Architect on .NET. I wish to have the beta package with multi-column support in the next couple of days. Please confirm this package for me. Even if there are bugs, it does not really matter. I can get it working with alternates. Thanks and Regards, Daniel >Hi, > >ISSUE: >====== >Want to convert a Microsoft Word document to PDF. > >DETAILS: >======== >We are able to setup all properties and formatting at the page, section and paragraph level. > >PROBLEM ANALYSIS: >================= >The Word document has a columnar layout based on sections.

Hi William, I am afraid; the sample converts a multi column Word Document to PDF. Could you please do the following steps in order to run sample? 1. Remove the old versions of assemblies from both GAC ([Installed Drive]:\WINDOWS\assembly) and public assemblies folder 2. Copy the latest assemblies which are attached with the sample to public assemblies folder. [ Installed Drive ]:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies 3. Install the assemblies from public assemblies into the GAC [ By drag and drop to assemblies folder ]. 4. Run the attached sample. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any questions. Here is the sample Link for your reference : DocIO_Sample.zip Thanks, Prabhu.
