I'm developing a feature to convert MS files to PDF using the PDF Tools API of Adobe and facing an issue regarding the Track Changes in MS files.

 

I want to control the option to accept (or not) the track changes of files and I can't find related information, class, or method for achieving this.

 

Currently, using the PDF Tools API, if I try to convert a Word with either track changes or comments to PDF, the track changes are being accepted by default, even if I don't want to accept the track changes.

 

The default works as described below:

  • Word contains Comments and Track Changes - the PDF is generated without both of them.
  • Word contains Only track changes - the PDF is generated with them.
  • Word contains Only comments - the PDF is generated without them.

 

We couldn't find solutions for this issue described above, could you please try to advise me, or provide a reference, for handling this issue?

The current implementation of the convert API has no options to control the conversion. The document will always be converted assuming that the changes are accepted.

Hi, thanks for your answer.

 

Do you know to explain why it works for specific scenarios?

 

  • Word contains Comments and Track Changes - the PDF is generated without both of them.
  • Word contains Only track changes - the PDF is generated with them.
  • Word contains Only comments - the PDF is generated without them.

 

It seems that the changes are not being accepted by default always.
