Converting word document to PDF/A 3B (PDF v1.7) - overlapped text


I am using last versions of Aspose.Words and Aspose.Pdf .NET to convert word documents to PDF/A 3B (v1.7) because of mandatory using of pades in european union since 1st July 2016.
At first I save the word document with aspose. words to PDF v1.5 then I convert it using Aspose.PDF to PDF v1.7 and then finaly convert it to PDF/A 3B

Code snippet:

Public Function ConvertToPDFA(Bytes() As Byte) As Byte() Implements IConverterPDFA.ConvertToPDFA
Dim InStream As New MemoryStream(Bytes)
Dim OutStream As New MemoryStream()
Dim Word As New Aspose.Words.Document(InStream)
Dim PDFAOptions As New Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions()
PDFAOptions.Compliance = Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfCompliance.Pdf15
PDFAOptions.FontEmbeddingMode = Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfFontEmbeddingMode.EmbedAll
Word.Save(OutStream, PDFAOptions)

Dim OutStreamPDFA3 As New MemoryStream()
Dim ms As New MemoryStream
Dim pdf As New Aspose.Pdf.Document(OutStream)
pdf.Convert(ms, Aspose.Pdf.PdfFormat.v_1_7, Aspose.Pdf.ConvertErrorAction.Delete)
ms = New MemoryStream
pdf.Convert(ms, Aspose.Pdf.PdfFormat.PDF_A_3B, Aspose.Pdf.ConvertErrorAction.Delete)

Return OutStreamPDFA3.ToArray
End Function

The problem is that after last step is performed the text in document is overlapped. Example document in attachment. I would really need this fixed before 1st July.
