Merge field time format no longer working

We have suddenly found time formats in our merge field not working correctly. We use the format hh:mm tt and on display of time we are seeing tt instead of am or pm. This has only happened since moving to version 11.4 of Aspose.Words.dll. If we use our previous version of 8.1 then the time still displays correctly. Looking online I see that the Word time format for merge fields has changed to use am/pm instead of tt. It looks as though version 8.1 was backwards compatible but is that not the case with version 11.4?

Hi Tony,


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

Best Regards,

Thanks for the prompt reply. I have attached a file with three time format merge fields that produce times with tt for am/pm.
