.getText() is sometimes different than shape.Text in Visio (Aspose.Diagram Java 22.9, .vsd files)

Aspose.Diagram for Java returns different values for the “text” field compared to what is visible in Visio for vsd files.

Visio version: MS Visio Professional 2016

Aspose.Diagram version (Java): aspose-diagram-22.9

I’ve attached an example file, you can check the text from visio with the following Visual Basic macro (select the shape in visio - e.g. with mouse or in drawing explorer - before running the script).

 Sub GetText()
    Set sel = ActiveWindow.Selection
    sel.IterationMode = 0
    Set shp = sel.PrimaryItem
    Debug.Print shp.Text
End Sub
