Is there a way to add a shape of type TextBox?
I need to add a textbox to the header and set position, HorizontalOrigin, VerticalOrigin, TextVerticalAlignment, AlternativeText etc... but if i use paragraph.appendTextBox those properties does not exists only if i use AppendShape.

The AutoShapeType does not contain TextBox type, i can't use AutoShapeType.Rectangle because i have another program that search for shapes of type TextBox and edit/delete them according to the user choice.
