Document with footnote causes document comparison to crash


We have two documents that includes a footnote that causes document comparison to crash when compared.

Version14.docx (14.3 KB)
Version26.docx (15.6 KB)

Comparing the documents produces the following exception:

Unhandled exception. GroupDocs.Comparison.Common.Exceptions.DocumentComparisonException: Error occurred in comparing Word documents
   at ☻▬§.☻(♣↑↨[] ☻, ♣↑↨[], CompareOptions ♣, ♥↨ ♠)
   at ↓.♥§♥▬☻(♥§ ☻, CompareOptions, SaveOptions ♣)
   at GroupDocs.Comparison.Comparer.☻(Stream ☻, Document, Document ♣, CompareOptions ♠, SaveOptions ♥, ♣§ )
   at GroupDocs.Comparison.Comparer.Compare(Stream document, SaveOptions saveOptions, CompareOptions compareOptions)

This code was run with GroupDocs.Comparison 24.2.0 in a .NET 6.0 console application on a Windows 11 machine:

using var comparer = new Comparer(loadPath1);

When comparion the documents with the online tool we get the following error:

Something went wrong
Server is not available

I suppose this is because of the same crash
