The scenario: I edit a MS Word document via code, and then use Word Automation Services(SyncConverter more precisely) to convert it to pdf. Currently there is a problem on the server and the conversion fails(this will be fixed). Until it is fixed I must send the client an example of the result.

What I do: I do my work with the Word document and then save it as a .docx file. No problem there. Then I open the file in MS Word 2013 and save it as .pdf.

The question: Will the file I convert manually and the generated one be identical.

1 Answer 1


Fixed: After testing both results I was able to confirm that the two files (the generated .pdf and the manually converted .pdf) are indeed identical.
