Bullet Symbol is Lost after Inserting HTML into DOCX using Java


I am facing an issue while using aspose words java to insert html into word document at a bookmark. The last bullet in the bullet list goes missing if the last bullet is empty. But when I insert the html to word file directly by using Insert tab in ms word it doesn’t get removed. I have attached the input word file, the html file used to insert html and the output word file in the zip attached to this topic.

The code used to do this is as follows:

String inputWordFilePath = "path/to/input/word/Test_Template.docx";
String inputHtmlFilePath = "path/to/input/html/Test.html";
org.jsoup.nodes.Document htmlDocument = Jsoup.parse(new File(inputHtmlFilePath), "UTF-8");
String html = htmlDocument.outerHtml();
Document document = new Document(inputWordFilePath);
DocumentBuilder documentBuilder = new DocumentBuilder(document);
documentBuilder.insertHtml(html, false);

The aspose words java version used is 21.6.0
