Is there a suggested strategy for migrating old text extended attribute content to the current release (Publish to MS Word behaviour)?

Hello,

I have a significant amount of modelling content (heavily utilising text extended attributes) that was created with Bizagi 2.3.0.5.

Can anyone recommend a migration path to get to 2.9.0.4 without a significant amount of text editing?My issue is primarily around the "Publish to MS Word" function's behaviour with regards to attribute text content.

Since 2.3.0.5 pre-dates the rich text options for attributes, the .doc/.docx output has been a little wild when opening a 2.3.0.5 file in a newer version of Bizagi.

However, since at least as early as 2.6.0.4, the "publish to MS Word" has ignored/discarded the line returns in text extended attributes from the 2.3.0.5 file, resulting in text blocks where paragraphs and enumerated separations once existed.

This behaviour holds true in 2.7.0.2 and 2.9.0.4

I would very much like to avoid coordinating a copy/paste marathon to transpose the text extended attribute content, if at all possible.
