InternalMargins of a textbox should be in points


I’m using Aspose Words for Java, version 16.7

The API calls to get or set the InternalMargins of a TextBox (left, right, bottom and top) should be in points but and that was true in earlier versions, but at least in the version I actally use (16.7) API TextBox.getInternalMargin… returns a value that is more than 12000 times bigger than it should be.
It this a known error?

Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please ZIP attach your input Word document here for testing? We will investigate the issue on our side and provide you more information.

Great that you answered so fast!
In the attached document you will find a shape node. The values of the internal margins of the TextBox of the shape are far too big. (It should be 21.6 for the left margin, the value that the API (ShapeNode.getTextBox().getInternalMarginLeft()) returns is 274320).

Best regards…
