+ added a new logic for converting objects before exporting, the process is automatic, this is necessary to convert some objects into vector graphics.

* rewritten code of expressions substitution in RichObject
* the HtmlTags property of the TextObject was marked as obsolete, a new property TextRenderType was added.
> developer note: the HtmlTags property allowed some HTML tags to be used in the TextObject text, one of the available tags is the FONT tag, this tag is deprecated, and not all browsers adequately support it, so we added a new renderer that allows you to use some CSS styles, in the style attribute and the tag SPAN.
* The new text render supports the following tags: b, i, u, strike, br, sub, sup, img, span.
> developer note: we do not aim to make a copy of the browser in a text object, but we try to make the logic as similar as possible with limitations, the img tag only supports the src (http, https, base64), the width and the height attributes (values in pixels), tags b, i, u, strike, sub, sup and span support only the style attribute, with a minimum set of styles.
