Installation of Aspose.Words through Nuget target to .NET Framework 4.6.1 generates facade libs to Debug folder

With the latest nuget package you’ve introduced the framework target .NETFramework4.6.1.

Unfortunately, if referencing this package in a net 4.6.1 project, on build netstandard.dll and other facade libs are copied to the output folder.

Please correct that.

Please have a look at my project and my first post. I’ve stated that the issue occurs with target framework set to .Net Framework 4.6.1. Your example project is targeting 4.7.2 which fully supports netstandard 2.0 and no facade libs are needed.

So please create a project targeting Net 4.6.1. Add the nuget package. (Optional migrate to PackageReference) and build the project.
