New Report Config Option for Footer Optimization Distance in Aspose.Words for JasperReports 2.8.1

The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for JasperReports 2.8.1 has been released. It includes new configuration option to optimize footer distance. By default, Aspose.Word for JasperReports tries to optimize footer contents for better fitting footer on the page. This optimization takes place when a bottom-most page element is too low on page by a) decreasing font size of last paragraph break of the footer and b) decreasing footer distance. If you do not like the view of footers, you can disable this footers optimization by setting OPTIMIZE_FOOTERS parameter to false. Users can also set explicit minimal distance between bottom-most element and bottom page margin. This is controlled by OPTIMIZE_FOOTER_DISTANCE parameter. By default, its value is 12.0. However, users can set any value between 12.0 and 36.0. Therefore, if the distance between bottom margin of the bottom-most element and page bottom margin is less or equal to this parameter value then footer is optimized, otherwise nothing happens. The list of new & improved features in this release are listed below
