SaveOptions.MemoryOptimization property

Gets or sets value determining if memory optimization should be performed before saving the document. Default value for this property is false.

public bool MemoryOptimization { get; set; }


Setting this option to true can significantly decrease memory consumption while saving large documents at the cost of slower saving time.


Shows an option to optimize memory consumption when rendering large documents to PDF.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Rendering.docx");

// Create a "PdfSaveOptions" object that we can pass to the document's "Save" method
// to modify how that method converts the document to .PDF.
SaveOptions saveOptions = SaveOptions.CreateSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Pdf);

// Set the "MemoryOptimization" property to "true" to lower the memory footprint of large documents' saving operations
// at the cost of increasing the duration of the operation.
// Set the "MemoryOptimization" property to "false" to save the document as a PDF normally.
saveOptions.MemoryOptimization = memoryOptimization;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "PdfSaveOptions.MemoryOptimization.pdf", saveOptions);
