Added new Configuration Option to Control Table Position

We have introduced a new configuration option USE_POSITIONING_TABLES to control table position. By default, its value is false. This means that Aspose Words for JasperReports will try to avoid positioning tables where possible. However, you can enable this option (set to true) if you need to force usage of positioning tables (for example, for complex reports with hierarchy of subreports, frames etc).

In JasperReports:

   import com.aspose.words.jasperreports.*;

   AWDocExporter exporter = new AWDocExporter();
   exporter.setParameter(AWExporterParameter.USE_POSITIONING_TABLES, true);

In JasperServer:

<bean id="aw_exportParameters" class="com.aspose.words.jasperreports.AWExportParametersBean">
    <property name="usePositioningTables" value="true"/>
