Incorrect Find&Replace may be problem with DocumentBuilder

Dear sirs!

I tryed to change any text string to URL by Find&Replace method. It’s strange, but text I searched is simply being removed.

My code is here
public int replacing(ReplacingArgs args) {
String matchStr = args.getMatch().group();
if (!matchStr.equalsIgnoreCase(exclude)){//dont replace the same document link
String url = ret.getURL(matchStr); //create URL, it’s work - it’s not empty string
if (url==null) return ReplaceAction.SKIP; //URL doesn’t exist
Run found = (Run)args.getMatchNode();
Run run2 = (Run)found.deepClone(true);
int index = found.getText().indexOf(args.getMatch().group()); //position of sersching text
if (index!=-1){//… I found text to replace
//clip text was found
run2.setText(found.getText().substring(index + args.getMatch().group().length()));
found.setText(found.getText().substring(0, index));
//now I have source text without words that I should replaced,
//run2 contains tail of string (after words that I should replaced
found.getParentParagraph().insertAfter(run2, found); //в исходном тексте вставляем run2 (хвост) после текста, который идет до заменяемого блока.Т.е. кусок без заменяемого текста
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder();
builder.setDocument((Document) args.getMatchNode().getDocument());
//Move to mathed node
builder.moveTo(run2);//move cursor to insert - may be error is here
//Insert hyperlink
builder.insertHyperlink(matchStr, url, true);//…
return ReplaceAction.REPLACE;
return ReplaceAction.SKIP;
}catch (Exception e){
return ReplaceAction.REPLACE;

In my doc file I should replace words starts as “СТП”, file repacing.docx contains result of job

Because i’m stuppid :-). Not ReplaceAction.REPLACE! Should be ReplaceAction.SKIP, because I made all replacment yet.
