Save as PDF failing to break lines when using footnode

Hello Gentlemen,

We are using your product to convert Word to PDF.
Recently we came across an issue, where the PDF document would not break a line, instead writing an endless line after certain conditions.

Inquiring the problem we found out, that the Word Document was reviewed with a different Office Product (Not MS Office) where somebody added a “wrong” Footnode. The Document was still saved as docX though and word is able to handle it (but displays it differently). The generated PDF from Aspose.Words fails on breaking the line which contains the broken Footnode properly.

We are using v17.9, just tried v18.3 which did not resolve the problem.

Cutting the footnode and inserting it back on place in MS Words solves the problem, but we would prefer a centralized solution, do you have any suggestions?

Yours faithfully,
