Font files remain open

We are using Aspose.Total for Java and we are experiencing following problem:

When we convert a document from the pdf to docx, font files (true type fonts) remain open. For instance, if we convert an attached document that uses many fonts, 15 files remain open, even after the file is closed. This doesn’t sound like much, but in our production environment, we can easily reach any limit of open files that we set to our servers, and usually, over 95% of the opened files are times.ttf.

Is there a way to make aspose close font files that it uses?

Regards,
Sofija

P.S. I am attaching our testing source code, file example and images that show that we have 15 files open after running this sample app (at the moment when the image is taken, the file is already converted, but fonts are not closed).

Thank you for the details. We have logged this information under the same ticket ID PDFJAVA-37396. We will investigate in the Linux Centos environment, and then let you know about our findings. Did you try the latest version 17.12 of Aspose.Pdf for Java API?

Thanks for the suggestion.
We tried 17.12 and had the same results as with 17.8

I apologize, I made a mistake in the original post. We are not using version 17.8 but version 17.11. Anyhow, it doesn’t work with that or the latest version.
