HTML Tags are not displayed properly in Linux

Post by gokulanand » Tue Sep 17, 2019 6:26 am

I have an existing MRT created using .Net Framework. The MRT have a text box with the text "Hello <b>World</b>". AllowHTMLTags attribute is set to True. When I export this mrt into pdf in .Net Framework, it is displayed properly ( "World" in bold letters )

I am migrating from .Net Framework to .Net Core and the export to pdf is working as expected in Windows OS. But when I try to export to PDF on a linux machine in .Net Core, the HTML tags are not working as expected. The text box doesnt display any text in PDF.

Can you please help.

Thanks

Hello,

HTML-tags support is implemented through the GDI system library, which is available only on Windows.
We have added checks, now on non-Windows systems, HTML-tags will work in previews(HTML) and export to Word/Excel.
in other cases, it will be displayed as plain text.

Full support for HTML-tags - a very difficult task for multi-platform.
We have this task in the to-do list, but due to the high complexity, the dates are unknown.

Thank you.
