[OfficeUtils] Additional spacing inserted
Question

Has anyone had a problem when using Word and additional spacing being added within the lines of a paragraph? It's causing us an issue as a document that should fit on one page is growing to need 2 pages.

I have even compared the document.xml of the original and the produced document and can't see any difference in spacing values. It's very strange.

Hi Trish,

Can you provide your template and result document?

Which stack are you using?

Best regards,

Hi Elena

We're using the .Net stack.

I'm attaching 2 documents, TemplateLetter.docx and ProducedLetter.docx. The spacing difference is small, but is within para spacing and adds up to make a bigger difference across the whole document.

Thanks

Hi Elena

Any ideas on this?

Hi Trish,

This is a bit of a long shot, but what worked for me is to click the "Set as Default" button on the Design Tab in Word before uploading the template as an OutSystems resource. (see image). There's also the button to remove all paragraph spacing above it.(above " effects" )

Hope it helps!
