FreeTextAnnotation Border width overlapping text inside

Pdf.Document doc = new Pdf.Document(inputPath);
Aspose.Pdf.Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(0, 0, 100, 100);
DefaultAppearance appearance = new DefaultAppearance(Pdf.Text.FontRepository.FindFont(“Arial”), 14, Color.Black);
FreeTextAnnotation freeTextAnnotation = new FreeTextAnnotation(doc.Pages[1],
rect, appearance);
freeTextAnnotation.Contents = “text in the box”;
freeTextAnnotation.Color = Aspose.Pdf.Color.Red;
freeTextAnnotation.Border.Width = 12;
