Convert PDF to DOCX using Java

Aspose PDF for java 21.12 version is producing docx files which on editing messes up the character spacing and line spacing when content is within a list.

API code used

public static void ConvertPDFtoWordDocAdvanced()
    Path pdfFile = Paths.get(_dataDir.toString(), "Sample-Report.pdf");
    Path docFile = Paths.get(_dataDir.toString(), "Sample-Report.docx");
    Document pdfDocument = new Document(pdfFile.toString());        
    DocSaveOptions saveOptions = new DocSaveOptions();
    // Specify the output format as DOC
    // Set the recognition mode as Flow
    // Enable the value to recognize bullets during conversion process

    pdfDocument.save(docFile.toString(), saveOptions);

Attached sample pdf and output word document generated.
