What is new in this release?

Aspose development team is happy to announce the monthly release of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 15.7.0 . Here is a look at just a few of the biggest features and API changes in this month’s release, Added API to work with Themes, Allow inserting of TIFF images, API to change footnote/endnote separator, Improved footnote balancing, improved text wrapping around objects in footers, ternary raster operations for EMF/WMF rendering implemented, PDF background rendering improved, text with gradient fill rendering implemented and Japanese OTF fonts overlapping characters problem in rendered images fixed. This release has added basic API to access document theme properties. Aspose.Words now can determine actual color of text output that will be used for the “auto color” using the Font.AutoColor Property. It returns the present calculated color of the text (black or white) to be used for ‘auto color’. If the color is not ‘auto’ then it returns Color. When text has ‘automatic color’, the actual color of text is calculated automatically so that it is readable against the background color. As you change the background color, the text color will automatically switch to black or white in MS Word to maximize legibility. This release implemented TextOrientation.VerticalRotatedFarEast property. It specifies orientation of text on a page, in a table cell or a text frame as following: Far East characters appear vertical, other text is rotated 90 degrees to the right to appears from top to bottom vertically, then left to right horizontally (tb-lr-v). This release added SaveOptions.UpdateSdtContent property. This option controls whether content of StructuredDocumentTag is updated before document saving. Default value is TRUE.
