Summary: My expectation is that all 3 PDF’s are almost identical. The Word and CloudConvert PDF’s are close to identical, but the Aspose PDF failed to use the Arial font.
Explanation: This docx contains some text in the Arial font, which is supplied to our docker-based on-premise deployment of Aspose Words. Word and CloudConvert both render the Arial text properly, but Aspose does not include the Arial font in the PDF. The aspose.app PDF attached, was generated by the following site:
Therefor I don’t believe this to be a case of a missing font in our on-premise deployment, but rather an issue with Aspose Words functionality. Finally, other docx files with Arial fonts do produce a PDF with the Arial font correctly used, so it’s something specific to the way the Arial font is used in this docx.
