Issue while converting hyperlinks to DOCX format

Hi Team,

The issue is appeared in 18.7 version.
Seems that WORDSNET-16965 fix leads to incorrect converting internal links to external.

Please see test.doc and result.docx (just open it) attached: (12.3 KB) (11.6 KB)

Source code:
var document = new Document(“C:\test.doc”);
document.Save(“C:\result.docx”, SaveFormat.Docx);

I have wrote some workaround, maybe it help you to investigate the issue:

foreach (Aspose.Words.Fields.Field field in document.Range.Fields)
				if (field.Type == Aspose.Words.Fields.FieldType.FieldHyperlink)
					Aspose.Words.Fields.FieldHyperlink hyperlink = (Aspose.Words.Fields.FieldHyperlink)field;

					if (hyperlink.SubAddress == null && hyperlink.Address.StartsWith("#"))
						var address = hyperlink.Address.Remove(0,1);

						hyperlink.Address = String.Empty;
						hyperlink.SubAddress = address;
