Rotated text box is not rotated when saved to PDF

I have a word document (docx) in which we rotated a text box in order to get upside down text. Word will do top to bottom, bottom to top, but not upside down. A common work around is to put it in a text box and then rotate the text box. This is not the same as rotating the text in a text box, which also will not allow upside down.

I have attached a zip file with the docx file, the PDF created by Aspose, and the PDF created by word.

I used Aspose Words 15.4 to create the PDF.
