Footnote Numbers Wrapping Incorrectly When Converting to PDF


I am using Visual Studio 2013, and have experienced this problem with Aspose Words 16.1, 16.6, and 16.10.
It occurs in certain circumstances when I am trying to save a Document object as a PDF file. When the footnotes in the document go into double digits, and appear at the end of a line, they will often wrap around to the next line without taking the text with which they’re associated - effectively orphaning the number on the next line by itself. This does not happen when saving as a Word document, and is both inconsistent and undesirable.

While the example I am providing involves converting an existing Word document to PDF, this is also a problem when generating the document programmatically and saving as PDF, which is the primary purpose of the system I am working on. I was just unable to produce a suitable demonstration of the problem using just code.

I use the following code to convert the document to PDF:

Document doc = new Document(“FootnoteDemo.docx”);
doc.Save(“FootnoteDemo.pdf”, SaveFormat.Pdf);

I have attached both the source Word document, and the sample PDF output.
