Preserve Latent Style Information during Saving Word DOCX Document (C# .NET)

I have found an issue when saving a document using Aspose.Words where it loses LatentStyle information for 4 styles from documents created in the following version of Word.

Microsoft 365 Apps for business
Microsoft® Word for Microsoft 365 MSO (16.0.14026.20270) 64-bit

Replication Steps

  • Create a new Blank Document (File > New > Blank Document)

  • Save the Document (File > Save > Browse > C:\Temp\Blank.docx)

  • Run the following code

    var document = new Document(@"C:\Temp\Blank.docx");
  • The LatentStyle info for the following 4 Styles will be missing

    • Mention
    • Smart Hyperlink
    • Hashtag
    • Unresolved Mention

This means that whenever saving with Aspose the styles reappear in the Style Pane
