The same paragraph is split into two while converting multi-column PDF to DOCX

We are evaluating Aspose.PDF (v21.8.0) for converting PDF into DOCX.

I convert my PDF document (test.pdf) that is multi-column to DOCX (test_savedToDocx.docx) with the following code:

var pdfDocument = new Document("test.pdf");
pdfDocument.Save("test_savedToDocx.docx", SaveFormat.DocX);

The .docx output contains corrupted paragraph:

“blockchains, if…” is part of “The blockchain was …” paragraph, but moved into separate paragraph:

This is a bug or there is some save option that allows preventing such paragraph breaks?

I can not reproduce the issue as the output looks same as the PDF file. I request you to check closely and share your feedback. DOCX_output.PNG (56.3 KB)

Yes, the output view is correct, but the layout is broken: in this case, the beginning of the second column should be continuation of the first, i.e. all content should be located in the same paragraph.
