Bullet item left indent is incorrect after DOCX to PDF conversion using .NET


When converting a DOCX to PDF, I noticed the first bullet gets shifted.


var doc = new Document(@".\test.docx");
doc.LayoutOptions.TextShaperFactory = HarfBuzzTextShaperFactory.Instance;

I’ve attached the test files and a screenshot for your reference. Could you please take a look?

After further analysis, I found that the extra shifting might come from the 4.5cm left margin on the bullet paragraph, where it seems to count from the end of the frame by Aspose, rather than the page.

I found that such settings are working fine when the paragraph does not start with a bullet (like the first paragraph in my screenshot), the issue only happens with bullets.

Hope this additional information would help your investigation as the issue is also quite important to us.
