When I was using the evaluation version of Words for Java 18.4 I could generated a pdf (PDF/A) from a docx using mail merge that was bit-wise the same on every run (as long as I used to same docx and same input).
When I upgrade to 18.5 or higher (I tried 5, 6, 8 and 9) this is no longer the case, the contents of the PDF changes on each run.
I had a very nice unit test that verified that my custom IMailMergeDataSource still produced exactly the same output. But that will no longer work.
Will I see the same behaviour when I purchase a license, or is this difference limited to the evaluation version?
If the licensed version’s behaviour is also changed: is there a way for me to get the old behaviour?
