Aspose.Words 8.0.0 has broken mail merging hyperlinks

Hi,

While testing the new version of Aspose.Words I have found that 8.0.0 has broken some functionality from version 7.0.0. Please see the attached Word document that contains a regular hyperlink and a merge field, wrapped in a hyperlink. In 7.0.0, the following mail merge produced the expected result (though note that both hyperlinks have lost their formatting, a bug which I have already raised with you).

Document doc = new Document(“C:\Hyperlink.doc”));
doc.MailMerge.Execute(new string[] { “SomeText”, “SomeURL” }, new object[] { “Here is the merged data”, “http://www.google.co.uk/” });
doc.Save(“C:\Out.doc”);
Result:

Plain hyperlink: http://www.google.co.uk/

Merged field that is a hyperlink: Here is the merged data

Running the same merge with 8.0.0 produces this incorrect result.

Plain hyperlink: http://www.google.co.uk/

Merged field that is a hyperlink: MERGEFIELD
SomeText * MERGEFORMAT
«SomeText»

I was disappointed that the hyperlink formatting bug was not fixed in 8.0.0, but really surprised that it broke existing functionality.
