I don’t see the ability to LoadWebDocument and save as a pdf for cells and slides but it exists for Word documents. Is there a reason this isn’t supported the feature would be make or break for our company wanting to user the product.
Thank you for contacting Aspose support.
Just to ensure we are on the same page, you want to save an Excel document and a PowerPoint document uploaded on the web in a PDF format? OR want to save a web page as Excel or PowerPoint document?
There is a excel document hosted at a remote URL. I want to load that document and save it as a PDF. The Words API has a call /words/LoadWebDocument that does exactly this for word documents. I would like to know why that behavior doesn’t exist for cells (or if it does and I can’t find it) and slides.
On top of this the saveAs functionality for cells supports SaveFormat but the java client SaveOptions.class object doesn’t have a SaveFormat field.
At present, Aspose.Cells and Aspose.Slides REST APIs do not provide a capability to download a document from a remote URL and save as PDF. I have logged a feature request in our internal tracking software to implement this feature.
But this should not be a bottleneck to use our APIs. You can simply download a document (from a remote URL) using any HTTP Client Library and save a document as PDF using following APIs.
Save PowerPoint presentation as PDF
Save Excel document as PDF
We are investigating the issue in the Java SDK and fix it shortly. Thank you.
