I have created one visual webpart to convert selected word document to pdf using word automation service. Pdf is created successfully on each time when WAS timer job runs. I know we can not retain metadata while converting word to pdf using WAS. I created Event Receiver and Visual Studio Workflow on item added/updated. So i can copy word file metadata to pdf document. But neither ItemAdded/ItemUpdated events of Event Receiver fired nor workflow. Does anyone know how to do it?
