Hi all,
I have a problem regarding images in resulted docx by converting from html.

As i saw, when converting " var paragraphs = converter.Parse(htmlText); ", paragraphs.count = 0.
So, that converter does not even see my paragraphs with image/images.. It sees my html empty.
MemoryStream generatedDocument = new MemoryStream();

            using (WordprocessingDocument package = WordprocessingDocument.Create(generatedDocument, WordprocessingDocumentType.Document))
                MainDocumentPart mainPart = package.MainDocumentPart;
                if (mainPart == null)
                    mainPart = package.AddMainDocumentPart();
                    new DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Wordprocessing.Document(new Body()).Save(mainPart);

                HtmlConverter converter = new HtmlConverter(mainPart);
                Body body = mainPart.Document.Body;

                var paragraphs = converter.Parse(htmlText);
                for (int i = 0; i < paragraphs.Count; i++)


                return generatedDocument;
I notice that i use version 1.5 HtmlToOpenXml.
How can i show you my htmlText because i cannot paste it here, characters limited.

Obs1: it really doesn't matter what image extension i use (png,jpeg.. etc)
Obs2: checked that htmlBody in IE/Chrome and it works great.

Hi Erik,

This is a recurring error that occurs with image.
Do you check the documentation? You are probably behind a proxy and thus you need to provide your credentials.

Do not hesitate to come back if the documentation doesn't help you.

Hi Oliver,
Yes i do read the documentation and also i do read the others's image problem. I downloaded yesterday the latest dll and still does not work. However, i found only one image that is rendering ok, but the rest don't. This makes me think is not a problem with a proxy or smthing else. In my html i have the bytes (inline base 64) of the image/images , so there is nothing to do with uploading from computer.
In order to prove this give me an email or smthing else to send you the html....
