Table Indention wrong when table with cellpadding inserted from HTML

Dear support-Team,

we’re inserting tables from HTML into Aspose Words Java.
The table we’re inserting has a cellpadding set to some value.

The result in the word document is that the whole table gets indented - in addition to the applied cell margins.

Please use this code to reproduce:

import com.aspose.words.DocumentBuilder;
import com.aspose.words.OoxmlSaveOptions;
public class AsposeTest {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            File file =  File.createTempFile("tempFile",".docx");
            FileOutputStream openOutputStream = FileUtils.openOutputStream(file);
            DocumentBuilder documentBuilder = new DocumentBuilder();
            documentBuilder.insertHtml("<table style=\"border: 0 solid #b4b4b4; bordercollapse: collapse; border-color: #b4b4b4; border-style: solid;\" border=\"1\" width=\"100%\" cellspacing=\"0\" cellpadding=\"50\"><tbody><tr><td>Lorem ipsum&nbsp;</td></tr></tbody></table>");
            documentBuilder.getDocument().save(openOutputStream, new OoxmlSaveOptions());
        } catch (IOException e) {
        } catch (Exception e) {

Our expectation would be that:

  • The table padding should be applied according to the value in cellpadding attribute in HTML
  • The table indent should NOT be applied

The problem can be reproduced in the most recent version of Aspose Words for Java 19.10

Thanks for your support
