Format problems when saving .dot as .odt


we still have many .dot templates with our customers and fill them with text and tables. Some customers do not use Microsoft Word but LibreOffice Writer.
There are position frames in the templates. If the document is saved as .odt, the wordwrap of this frame is changed so that the following text is on the right instead of under the frame.

If tables are inserted and these contain checkboxes, they are not displayed if a text with a very long word is entered in a subsequent column.

If I save the output in Microsoft Word as odt., the formatting is correct.

How can I use Aspose Words to achieve the same formatting as .doc or .docx?

The attached test project shows this behavior.

Many thanks
