WordGlue is a generic layout engine which supports DOC and DOCX conversion and rendering for converting Microsoft Office formats.

100% managed, 100% thread safe and 100% independent of applications like MS Word and OpenOffice.org. Compatible with both .NET Classic and .NET Core.

Designed to convert semantic formats like DOC and DOCX documents to PDF, XPS, SVG and also to raster formats like PNG and JPEG.

The DOC and DOCX rendering engine is general purpose so it can be easily extended to support other formats like HTML and RTF.

WordGlue comes with a viewer application for opening, viewing and converting documents. So it's easy for you to test. Just open your test documents, see what they look like, save them in an appropriate format.

The code for the viewing application comes included with WordGlue and is extremely compact. So once you're happy with the basic functionality it's simple to create your own conversions. In fact so simple it's trivial.

Compatible with both .NET Framework and .NET Core.

For .NET Core see the 'Getting Started' section of the documentation for details of resources you may need to reference.

*** License Installation ***

After you first install, you are likely to need to insert a trial license.

If you do not have a valid license - either full or trial - then an exception will be raised when you use methods like Doc.Save.

In Visual Studio open the NuGet Package Manager Console using the menu 'Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Console'.

Then at the 'PM>' command prompt, enter the command 'wordglue.ps1' - without the quotes.

This will insert a valid trial license.
