Docx to PDF conversion returns more number of pages using Java


We are using groupdocs-conversion-17.12 for docx to pdf conversion. We have noticed that converted pdf contains more number of pages than original docx file, also line numbers have changed. We need both line numbers and pages in converted pdf as same as original document.

Please suggest if there is any known issue/fix for this?

We’d recommend you to integrate latest version of the API 18.7 in your project in order to get right output. You can also clone our updated example project managed as per v18.7 code changes.

Even with 18.7 we are observing that number pages are more in the converted document. Please find attached docx (25 pages) and corresponding converted pdf (27 pages).

Also, we have observed that Chinese text is not coming properly instead it is coming as ???
You can observe the same in the attachment.
