Built-in properties are automatically added when file is saved

Hi, Aspose team.

Scenario: Sample DOCX file does not contain built-in properties (see “docProps\app.xml” and “docProps\core.xml” XML parts in DOCX package). I open DOCX file using Aspose.Words and save it (to the same format or DOC format). sample - no properites.zip (29.6 KB)

Issue on save to the same format: Almost all built-in properties are automatically added.

Issue on conversion to DOC: Some built-in properties are automatically added (revision number, total editing time, word count, character count, paragraph count).

Open XML SDK allows removing built-in propertied and they do not re-appear when file is saved. Also I do no see a point in inserting properties with wrong values (for example, words count property is always inserted with 0 value).

Can Aspose.Words be updated so that built-in properties are not added on save?

Thanks
