      • getPreserveTableLayout/setPreserveTableLayout

        public boolean getPreserveTableLayout() / public void setPreserveTableLayout(boolean value)
        
        Specifies whether the program should attempt to preserve layout of tables when saving in the plain text format. The default value is false.

        Example:

        Shows how to change the appearance of tables and lists during conversion to a txt document output.
        // Open a document with a table
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Lists.PrintOutAllLists.doc");
        
        // Due to the nature of text documents, table grids and text wrapping will be lost during conversion
        // from a file type that supports tables
        // We can preserve some of the table layout in the appearance of our content with the PreserveTableLayout flag
        // The SimplifyListLabels flag will convert some list symbols
        // into ASCII characters such as *, o, +, > etc, depending on list level
        TxtSaveOptions txtSaveOptions = new TxtSaveOptions();
        {
            txtSaveOptions.setSimplifyListLabels(true);
            txtSaveOptions.setPreserveTableLayout(true);
        }
        
        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "TxtSaveOptions.Appearance.txt", txtSaveOptions);
      • getPrettyFormat/setPrettyFormat

        public boolean getPrettyFormat() / public void setPrettyFormat(boolean value)
        
        When true, pretty formats output where applicable. Default value is false.

        Set to true to make HTML, MHTML, EPUB, WordML, RTF, DOCX and ODT output human readable. Useful for testing or debugging.

        Example:

        Shows how to pass an option to export HTML tags in a well spaced, human readable format.
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Document.doc");
        
        HtmlSaveOptions htmlOptions = new HtmlSaveOptions(SaveFormat.HTML);
        // Enabling the PrettyFormat setting will export HTML in an indented format that is easy to read.
        // If this is setting is false (by default) then the HTML tags will be exported in condensed form with no indentation.
        htmlOptions.setPrettyFormat(true);
        
        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "Document.PrettyFormat.html", htmlOptions);
      • getSaveFormat/setSaveFormat

        public abstract int getSaveFormat() / public abstract void setSaveFormat(int value)
        
        Specifies the format in which the document will be saved if this save options object is used. The value of the property is SaveFormat integer constant.
      • getTempFolder/setTempFolder

        public java.lang.String getTempFolder() / public void setTempFolder(java.lang.String value)
        
        Specifies the folder for temporary files used when saving to a DOC or DOCX file. By default this property is null and no temporary files are used.

        When Aspose.Words saves a document, it needs to create temporary internal structures. By default, these internal structures are created in memory and the memory usage spikes for a short period while the document is being saved. When saving is complete, the memory is freed and reclaimed by the garbage collector.

        If you are saving a very large document (thousands of pages) and/or processing many documents at the same time, then the memory spike during saving can be significant enough to cause the system to throw System.OutOfMemoryException. Specifying a temporary folder using TempFolder will cause Aspose.Words to keep the internal structures in temporary files instead of memory. It reduces the memory usage during saving, but will decrease the save performance.

        The folder must exist and be writable, otherwise an exception will be thrown.

        Aspose.Words automatically deletes all temporary files when saving is complete.

      • getUpdateFields/setUpdateFields

        public boolean getUpdateFields() / public void setUpdateFields(boolean value)
        
        Gets or sets a value determining if fields of certain types should be updated before saving the document to a fixed page format. Default value for this property is true. Allows to specify whether to mimic or not MS Word behaviour.

        Example:

        Shows how to update fields before saving into a PDF document.
        Document doc = DocumentHelper.createDocumentFillWithDummyText();
        
        PdfSaveOptions pdfSaveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();
        pdfSaveOptions.setUpdateFields(false);
        
        // PdfSaveOptions objects can be cloned
        Assert.assertNotSame(pdfSaveOptions, pdfSaveOptions.deepClone());
        
        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "UpdateFields_False.pdf", pdfSaveOptions);
      • getUpdateLastSavedTimeProperty/setUpdateLastSavedTimeProperty

        public boolean getUpdateLastSavedTimeProperty() / public void setUpdateLastSavedTimeProperty(boolean value)
        
        Gets or sets a value determining whether the BuiltInDocumentProperties.LastSavedTime property is updated before saving.

        Example:

        Shows how to update a document time property when you want to save it
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Document.doc");
        
        //Get last saved time
        Date documentTimeBeforeSave = doc.getBuiltInDocumentProperties().getLastSavedTime();
        
        OoxmlSaveOptions saveOptions = new OoxmlSaveOptions();
        saveOptions.setUpdateLastSavedTimeProperty(true);
      • getUpdateSdtContent/setUpdateSdtContent

        public boolean getUpdateSdtContent() / public void setUpdateSdtContent(boolean value)
        
        Gets or sets value determining whether content of StructuredDocumentTag is updated before saving. The default value is true.
      • getUseAntiAliasing/setUseAntiAliasing

        public boolean getUseAntiAliasing() / public void setUseAntiAliasing(boolean value)
        
        Gets or sets a value determining whether or not to use anti-aliasing for rendering.

        The default value is false. When this value is set to true anti-aliasing is used for rendering.

        This property is used when the document is exported to the following formats: SaveFormat.TIFF, SaveFormat.PNG, SaveFormat.BMP, SaveFormat.JPEG, SaveFormat.EMF. When the document is exported to the SaveFormat.HTML, SaveFormat.MHTML and SaveFormat.EPUB formats this option is used for raster images.

      • getUseHighQualityRendering/setUseHighQualityRendering

        public boolean getUseHighQualityRendering() / public void setUseHighQualityRendering(boolean value)
