Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

Document document = new Document("");
// save PS as a DOC 
document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); 
// load Doc with an instance of Document
var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc");
// call save method while passing SaveFormat.Dotx
outputDocument.Save("output.dotx", SaveFormat.Dotx);   

Decrypt PS File using Owner Password via .NET

Before converting PS to DOTX, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the PS using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.

Document document = new Document("", "password");
// decrypt PS
// save the decrypted document as doc 

Create ReadOnly DOTX- File via .NET

In order to protect your DOTX from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API.

It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.

Document document = new Document("input.doc");
// apply document protection and set protection password
doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password");
// call save method while passing SaveFormat.Dotx
document.Save("output.dotx", SaveFormat.Dotx);

What is PS File Format?

The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.

PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.

The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.

PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.

While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.

What is DOTX File Format?

The DOTX file format is a file extension used by Microsoft Word to store document templates. It is a variant of the DOCX format and is based on the Open XML file standard. DOTX files serve as reusable templates that contain predefined formatting, styles, and content for creating new documents.

When a DOTX template is opened in Microsoft Word or a compatible word processing program, it creates a new document based on the template. The template’s formatting, styles, and other design elements are applied to the new document, providing consistency and saving time in formatting and layout. Users can then customize the content while maintaining the predefined structure of the template.

DOTX files are particularly useful when creating documents with consistent branding, such as letterheads, invoices, or reports. They allow organizations to establish a unified look and feel across their documents and ensure adherence to corporate standards.

To create a DOTX file, you can start by designing a document template in Microsoft Word or any other program that supports the Open XML format. Once the template is finalized, you can save it as a DOTX file. This allows you to reuse the template for future documents, ensuring consistency and streamlining the document creation process.

When working with DOTX files, it’s important to note that they do not contain any macros or scripting functionality like their DOTM counterparts. DOTX files are focused solely on document formatting and structure, making them suitable for situations where macros or custom programming are not required.
