[Bug] Table layout is broken after comparing

We are using Aspose.Word to compare 2 word files. Then we apply an xls script to separate output into 2 columns of a table. Left column contains only inserted part (<w:ins> tag), the right column contains deleted part (<w:del> tag).
However, in some cases of table, layout of the table in output file is broken like image below

As you can see, the width of table cell are different.
We tested with your online page https://products.aspose.app/words/comparison but the layout of the table is still broken as image below:

Please tell me if there is any option that can keep format of a table. Or not, please fix this bug.
I attached our data test here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Yfi2hAizLDox_C10-wL04X4_HH5xHcfC?usp=sharing

@nhanpt,

I have compared “Word2003A4a.docx” (Original document) with “Word2003A4b.docx” (Revised document) by using MS Word 2019 and attached the resultant document here for your reference:

Do you see the same problem with above DOCX document when running the XLS script on your end?

Aspose.Words also provides Document Compare Options similar to following that you can try on your end:

In case the problem still remains, then please also provide the XLS script and complete steps that we can follow on our end to reproduce/observe the same problem.

We are developing an application for client (.Net Winform) that can compare 2 word files display side by side using Aspose.Word. So sorry, I cannot provide you with XLS script.
When comparing with “compare document” feature of MS word as you mentioned, I do not see the problem anymore.
However, problem is that: when I compare 2 files with your online page as well as Aspose.Word for Net. I got a broken layout table as image below:

I think it is a bug of your library, isn’t it?
