Image in header not showing on Word 2016 for Mac (compatability mode)


I’m adding an image to my header with:

builder.InsertImage(headerImage, 520.0, 72.0);

I then added the following options to my Save based on previous posts I found:

Aspose.Words.Saving.OoxmlSaveOptions ooSave = new Aspose.Words.Saving.OoxmlSaveOptions();
ooSave.Compliance = Aspose.Words.Saving.OoxmlCompliance.Iso29500_2008_Transitional;
ooSave.SaveFormat = SaveFormat.Docx;
document.Save(s, ooSave);

This works fine on a PC but if I open it in Word 2016 on a Mac the image in the header doesn’t show until they Save and update the file format?

Anything I can do to prevent this, is there a later version with the appropriate complaince level.

Currently using of Aspose.Words but the latest documentation doesn’t mention any newer compliance options.
