DrCeeVee Posted May 2, 2019 Report Share Posted May 2, 2019 Greetings to the Nitro Community and the Nitro Pro Development Team, I've been asked by my team leader to evaluate various PDF authoring s/w and recommend the one that best meets our requirements. Nitro Pro is among the top candidates, but I've discovered a bug that is too serious to ignore! I've tried several times to convert Word documents that contain headings, to PDF using the latest Trial Version of Nitro Pro. The conversion appears to complete OK and the resulting PDF is of excellent quality, but the Word document's headings are not transferred to the PDF as bookmarks! For the conversions I've used the Nitro Pro Word Add-on, and have ticked the checkbox "Convert Heading Styles to Bookmarks". I've tried many combinations of different settings and quality selections for the PDF output, but the resulting PDF files never contain any bookmarks. When I simply save the Word document as PDF (using Word's built-in PDF converter), all headings are correctly transferred as bookmarks to the resulting PDF file. I've reproduced this behaviour in two different computers running different versions of MS Office under different versions of Windows. In all cases, Nitro Pro somehow completely ignores the heading data when creating the PDF files, even though the selected settings specify that the heading data should be used. Furthermore, the same issue occurs when converting from Excel to PDF! Again, no bookmarks are generated in the PDF for each Sheet, even though the option "Create Bookmark for Each Sheet" is selected. The above is not acceptable behaviour. Another minor bug in the Word and Excel add-ons is that, in the window that pops up when clicking the "Advanced" button, the "Help" button doesn't work (doesn't do anything). This indicates to me that the Word/Excel add-ons may have been developed very quickly and not thoroughly beta-tested. Version details are given below: Nitro Pro 18.104.22.1682 (Trial Version), tested on the following: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 10 Professional Can the development team please look into this, and let me know if you can reproduce this behaviour? If yes, is there any chance that you can fix this bug soon? If you want, I can provide sample Word/Excel files, and the resulting PDF files that demonstrate the bug. Many thanks for your help. Looking forward to your reply. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
