.NET Standard 2.0 API Limitations

There are a couple of additional dependencies that should be installed when running on Linux:

  1. Windows Fonts - because of the lack of Windows fonts in Linux fonts used in documents are substituted with available fonts, this might lead to inaccurate document layout when rendering the document to PNG, JPG, and PDF.

  2. SkiaSharp Native Assets - SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.2 or higher

  3. System.Drawing dependencies - libgdiplus 6.0.1 or higher
