Aspose Cells .NET ShowTabs setting


I am using the latest Aspose.Cells 19.8 for dotnet 2.1. I am seeing a problem where I create a workbook with the horizontal and vertical scrollbars hidden, but tabs showing in Excel. Then using Aspose I open the workbook and immediately save it under a different name. After saving, the horizontal and vertical scrollbars are both hidden, but the bug is the tabs are now hidden too.

Here is how the settings should be configured under the Display options for this workbook setting:

I can provide an example excel sheet if necessary, but it is not public data so I need to share it directly with you. The code is very simple:

using (var workbook = new Workbook(@"C:\hidden.xlsx"))

Your sample file is required for testing. You can send me a private message by clicking my name or pink icon “A” and then pressing the Message button. Or you may set this thread to private and then share the file here. You can also upload the encrypted file on some public file sharing server and share the link to the file and password through private message described above.

We will analyse the sample file and share our feedback at the earliest.
