Table layout is incorrect when compatibility mode is set to 2010 using .NET

When I is to use the “EnumerateLayoutElements” in Aspose.Words for .NET examples repository at GitHub to draw the layout of the Node location, end page 17 and 18 pages there is a big table, table clearly filled the entire width of the part and beyond, but I view the API to draw the Node of the page frame, found that he only accounts for less than half of the whole page width, the difference is affected, the logic of our current project. Please help me to find out what is causing this situation and is there any way to solve it?

When i update the version of aspose words for .net to 20.4.0,it is also has this error.
On inspection, I found that the difference was caused by calling

Document doc = new Document(file.FullName);

while initializing the document. However, I need to use the compatibility mode of 2010. How can I avoid this problem while using the compatibility mode of 2010?


Please call Document.UpdateTableLayout method as shown below to get the desired output.

Document document = new Document(MyDir + @"Assessment Paper AY 2019 Semester 2 CE03 MSA Main 1_Version 1.docx");
document.Save(MyDir + "20.4.pdf");

I found this problem again, please help to check the cause and solution. Thank you very much ~
