Appending a file with contains lists will result in wrong numbering of listitems


In the lastest version of Aspose (17.8), I have encountered an issue when appending a document that contains a list. The numbering of the listitems gets messed up (list continues instead of starting on 1 again). I have created a sample document to illustrate the issue. This seems to work fine in version 17.6.

I’m using the following code:

var document = new Document();
var sourceDocument = new Document(@"D:\ListTest.docx");
document.AppendDocument(sourceDocument, ImportFormatMode.UseDestinationStyles); (10.6 KB)
