Update Fields Loses Table Formatting


I have a document with a few tables and IF fields to show or hide these tables. When the document is converted to PDF, the UpdateFields is first called to update these IF fields. This is causing the formatting of the tables to be corrupted (margins, etc.).

If I update the fields of the input Word document directly in Word, there are not formatting issues, and so the cause is within the Aspose UpdateFields. If I convert to PDF without the UpdateFields call, there are no formatting issues.

Can you please tell me what this issue might be?
