@gertjaap,

Regarding WORDSNET-17535, unfortunately, your issue is not resolved yet. We have completed the initial analysis of this issue but I am afraid, because of complexity, the implementation of this issue has been postponed till a later date. There is no ETA available at the moment. ADVANCE field is currently not supported by the layout engine of Aspose.Words. It is unlikely to be supported soon as MS Word’s logic is not clear and at least some of the field switches are deprecated in the newer versions of MS Word. We will inform you via this thread as soon as this issue will be resolved in future. We apologize for your inconvenience.
