Convert PDF to DOC/DOCX - Words in transparent shapes are lost when converted

Hi Aspose team,

We found some words in PDFs are lost when converted to Doc in the case that the words are in ransparent shapes

We tested Foxit to convert pdf to word, it performs well and can recognize the words in the transparent shapes.
We are using Aspoe.pdf v19.12. Here’s our code
using (Document pdf = new Document(“sample.pdf”))
// Save using save options
// Create DocSaveOptions object
DocSaveOptions docSaveOptions = new DocSaveOptions();
// Set the recognition mode as Flow
docSaveOptions.Mode = DocSaveOptions.RecognitionMode.Flow;
pdf.Save(“sample.doc”, docSaveOptions);

Here’s our test file
