Problem with font in PDF exported from DOCX


After saving a docx document as pdf, in the resulting PDF the font is displayed incorrectly, even though I set a directory with fonts. Below you can find the code used:

package com.test;

import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.nio.file.Files;
import java.nio.file.Paths;

import com.aspose.words.FontSettings;
import com.aspose.words.License;

public class AsposeDocxToPdfConversion
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
        try(InputStream inputWord = Files.newInputStream(Paths.get("C:/test/test.docx"));
            OutputStream outputPdf = Files.newOutputStream(Paths.get("C:/test/test.pdf")))
            FontSettings.getDefaultInstance().setFontsFolder("C:/test/fonts", false);
            com.aspose.words.Document asposeDoc = new com.aspose.words.Document(inputWord);
            asposeDoc.save(outputPdf, com.aspose.words.SaveFormat.PDF);

I also attach the source docx file (test.docx), the pdf file created by Aspose (test.pdf incorrect), the pdf file created by Word2016 (test-word.pdf correct), zip file with fonts from C:/test/fonts directory.

Is it a bug in the Aspose.Words for Java (I have checked also the newest version) or something in the code should be done differently?test.zip (631.3 KB)
