Viewing msg-files as pdf; problem with papersize and language

Dear team,

i am using GroupDocs Viewer DLL 18.4 with vb.net and I have another issue regarding the papersize and language when viewing msg-files in pdf-format. Despite setting the papiersize with options.ProjectOptions.PageSize = GroupDocs.Viewer.Converter.Options.PageSize.A4
the command file_container = GD_handler.GetPdfFile(filename, options) returns a pdf-file using papersize letter and not A4.

In addition the english language is used in the header of the mail (“From”, “Subject” etc). Is it possible to change the language?
Thanks in advance!
Alex

@alexkop,

Thanks for using GroupDocs.Viewer and sharing your concerns with us.

Please note that the options in PdfFileOptions.ProjectOptions class are only valid for MS Project documents and you can not use them for msg files.

Currently, this feature is not supported by GroupDocs.Viewer. However, we have logged it in our Issue Tracking System (with ID: VIEWERNET-1571) and we shall look into it to check if there is any possibility to provide this feature in future releases.

Thank you for the info.

Is it possible to change the papersize from letter to A4 when viewing msg-files as pdf?
