Adding merge field to winrt richtextboxadv places it at the very beginning of the document

Hello All,

Here are the steps to reproduce my issue

1 - Load the document into the richtextboxadv (mine was saved as docx byte[] in my db then im using a converter in xaml to convert byte[] back to docx like that <sync:richtextboxadv Document={Binding DocxBytes[], Converter={StaticResource BytesArrayToDocxDocument} ...)

2 - add a merge field to the richtextboxadv (im saving first my richtextboxadv document onto a worddocument as docx, then i call document.lastparagraph.appendfield(...)
3 - reload the richtextboxadv document (from the previously saved worddocument docx

i can see that the merge field has been added but instead of being added at the very end of my document, next to the last word, its added at the very beginning

Im using dll version

Thx for your work
