• Use new setup.
Bug Fixes:
• Partially fixed. Wiki Publisher doesn’t preserve the hypertext links within the PDF document and displayed them as html elements in the document. We will preserve the original text but cannot preserve the hypertext link due to our product limitations.

Current Limitations:

Note: Due to 3rd party main limitations (Sync Fusion) we will have the same limitations:

Paragraph and Character formatting
• Borders around paragraphs.
• Full Justification.

Multi-Column Texts
• The output may look different in case full-justification formatting is applied on to the columns.
• Bulleted, numbered and multi-level lists
• In some case, the image bullets which are set on document may be replaced other symbols in the generated document.

• The images placed inside a shape will not be preserved in the generated PDF document.

• Tables making use of patterns and 3D borders will not be retained in the output document.
• Absolutely positioned tables are not supported.

• The OLEObjects are partially supported, (i.e.) image which represents a particular document will be available in the generated PDF document. But the object associated with the object will not be converted into the generated document.
Un-Supported Elements

The following are the list of un-supported elements, which will be supported in the future releases and will not be preserved in the generated PDF document.
• Shapes and auto shapes.
• Comments.
• Hyperlinks.
• Bookmarks.
• Foot note and end note.
• Dynamic Fields.
• Charts.
• Table of Contents.


Wiki Publisher component’s Essential DocIO makes sensible decision while lay outing the text, and its supported elements while generating the PDF documents. But however, we cannot guarantee pagination with all the documents. 

Current Known Issues:

• Cannot import documents have footnotes for 2010 documents. See work around in
