getAlternativeText() on java aspose.words

I'm working on a reporting solution and considering Aspose.

An aspect of this reporting solution is that users can insert a tag into the alternative text field on images to mark them as images that should be replaced by other images based on the tag. (format picture dialog in ms word allows this) (attachment1)

I have tried to use the shape.getAlternativeText() to store this tag.

My tests so far indicates that there is a problem with Aspose.words for java document storing and loading for some file formats. The alternative text disappears during these operations.

the .doc format seems to work with this property.

.odt and .docx seem to lose this property (even though alternative text is supported in the document format)

Attached is a junit test that demonstrates this issue.
