Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of APIs that enables developers to add powerful document manipulation and conversion features to their .NET applications. It includes the Aspose.PDF for .NET API, which allows developers to convert PostScript (PS) files to Microsoft Word (DOC) format. After conversion, the Aspose.Words for .NET API can be used to render the DOC file to OpenDocument Text (ODT) format.
The Aspose.PDF for .NET API provides a wide range of features for manipulating PDF documents, including the ability to create, edit, and convert PDF files. It also supports the conversion of PDF files to other popular document formats, such as HTML, XPS, and SVG. The API also provides features for extracting text and images from PDF documents, as well as for adding annotations, watermarks, and digital signatures.
The Aspose.Words for .NET API is a powerful document processing API that enables developers to create, edit, and convert documents in a variety of formats, including DOC, DOCX, ODT, and HTML. It also provides features for rendering documents to PDF, XPS, and other popular formats. The API also supports the conversion of documents to and from HTML, as well as the extraction of text and images from documents.
Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful suite of APIs that makes it easy for developers to add powerful document manipulation and conversion features to their .NET applications. With the Aspose.PDF for .NET API, developers can easily convert PS files to DOC format, and with the Aspose.Words for .NET API, they can render DOC files to ODT format. The APIs also provide a wide range of features for manipulating and converting documents in a variety of formats.
C# API to Convert PS to ODT
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // 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.Odt outputDocument.Save("output.odt", SaveFormat.Odt);
Decrypt PS File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting PS to ODT, 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("Decrypt.ps", "password"); // decrypt PS document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly ODT- File via .NET
In order to protect your ODT 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. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET 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.Odt document.Save("output.odt", SaveFormat.Odt);

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 ODT File Format?
ODT is a file format used for storing documents in the Open Document Format (ODF). ODT stands for Open Document Text. It is the default file format for word processing documents created by applications such as LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and Apache OpenOffice.
ODT files are based on XML, which is a markup language used for organizing and structuring data. They are designed to be an open and interoperable format, allowing users to create, edit, and share documents across different software applications and platforms.
The ODT format supports a wide range of features and formatting options commonly found in word processing documents. It includes support for text styling, paragraphs, tables, images, hyperlinks, headers and footers, footnotes, and more. ODT files can also contain embedded objects and multimedia elements.
One of the key advantages of the ODT format is its compatibility with different software applications. Users can create an ODT document in one word processing application and open it in another without losing formatting or content. This promotes collaboration and ensures that documents can be accessed and edited by users who may be using different software.
ODT files can be easily converted to other popular document formats, such as Microsoft Word’s DOCX format or PDF, for wider compatibility and sharing purposes. Additionally, the ODT format is designed to be future-proof, allowing for long-term preservation and accessibility of documents.
