GoToRemoteAction/GoToAction destination encoding issue


I’ve a PDF document with hundreds of GoToRemoteAction annotations.
When I execute this code (Aspose.Pdf 19.5)

foreach (string s in pdfDocument.NamedDestinations.Names)
it will return the names with the correct encoding and french accents For example:
CA002-Resi9-Mono.indd:CA002-A2-Branchement à puissance limitée:67

Now, when I browse all the annotations in the document

AnnotationSelector selector = new AnnotationSelector(new LinkAnnotation(pdfDocument.Pages[i], Aspose.Pdf.Rectangle.Trivial));
var list = selector.Selected;
foreach (var annot in list)
LinkAnnotation linkannot = (LinkAnnotation)annot;
string action = linkannot.Action.GetType().Name;
/* some othe code, not important for the test */
string destName = (linkannot.Action as Aspose.Pdf.Annotations.GoToRemoteAction).Destination.ToString();
Console.WriteLine("destName: " + destName);

It will return
CA002-Resi9-Mono.indd:CA002-A2-Branchement ? puissance limit?e:67

The accents are replaced with “?”

Am I missing something? Is is a bug.
