Text formatting is lost after adding cloned row to table using Java

Hi Aspose team.

I’m trying to clone a table row and add it to a table.
But the deep clone fails to clone the bold text.
We are using aspose words java lastest version.

As you can see in the image above, the second row is cloned from the first, all font properties are correctly cloned, but the BOLD not.
Is this a bug, or I am doing something wrong?

I’m using the following code, to clone and add the row to the table:
Row clonedRow = (Row) table.getLastRow().deepClone(true);
table.getRows().insert(table.getLastRow().getCount(), clonedRow);

This is urgent for us.

Kind regards,
Paulo Pereira

In the arquive the input and output document.
The code used is a simple row clone, as you can see here :

Document srcDoc = new Document(dataDir + “Template_not_working(1).docx”);

    Table table = srcDoc.getFirstSection().getBody().getTables().get(0);

    Row clonedRow = (Row) table.getLastRow().deepClone(true);
    table.getRows().insert(table.getLastRow().getCount(), clonedRow);
    srcDoc.save(dataDir + "TestFile Out.docx");  

Kind regards,

It is to inform you that the issue which you are facing is actually not a bug in Aspose.Words. So, we have closed this issue (WORDSNET-19824) as ‘Not a Bug’.

In your document, there is special formatting for the first row - bold font. Actually, for the NON-bold strings bold is explicitly set to false. Font for the bold strings is ‘coming’ from the table style. Therefore after cloning bold strings became normal.

To avoid that it’s needed to modify table style (change/remove formatting for the first row and set font weight explicitly for the text in the table), or remove it at all if it’s possible. Please check the attached image for detail. table_style.png (37.6 KB)

Moreover, you can call Table.ExpandTableStylesToDirectFormatting() method before cloning the row to get the desired output.
