How find hyperlink in header/footer in PDF generated from Word document?

Hi Aspose team,

I created one simple PDF document from Word.

Document has header, content, footer and comment and in each area is one hyperlink.

I am able to access content and comment area and read hyperlink but link that is in header and footer cannot be read.

It is possible to read header and footer text but hyperlink is missing.

Can this be achieve? I attached test document.

Code is:

For Each objPage As Aspose.Pdf.Page In officeDocument.Pages

For Each art As Artifact In objPage.Artifacts




For subtype I am getting Undefined(4) but for CustomType I have “Pagination” and in CustomSubtype I have nothing.

Thanks in advance,
