Convert Word to PDF in PHP using GroupDocs.Conversion REST API changes bullet points

@tilal.ahmad

When converting a word document to PDF bullet points inside word document get converted to clocks icon. Screenshot in the attachment. I have also attached both Word and PDF file in the attachment.

We are using PHP SDK to call the API.

Thank you,

@gopalsharma

You are getting the issue due to missing font. Please note since GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud 21.4, we start supporting the use of custom fonts in the conversion. Please create a font folder(fonts/ttf) in the cloud storage, copy the custom fonts(in this case symbol.ttf) to it and pass its path to the FontsPath parameter. It will resolve the issue.

$settings->setFontsPath("fonts/ttf");

Thank you @tilal.ahmad for you help.
This works exactly as expected. Following is the code if someone looking to resolve the same issue.

$watermark = new GroupDocs\Conversion\Model\WatermarkOptions();
$watermark->setItalic(true);
$watermark->setBold(true);

$settings = new GroupDocs\Conversion\Model\ConvertSettings();
$settings->setFontsPath("fonts/ttf");
