Aspose image rendering ignores Asian fonts in textbox with cell reference

Hi,


When converting an Excel sheet which contains a textbox with cell reference. The output image ignores the Asian font set in the textbox.

Code:
var workbook = new Workbook(@“test.xlsx”);
var options = new ImageOrPrintOptions
{
ImageFormat = ImageFormat.Emf,
OnlyArea = false,
TextRenderingHint = TextRenderingHint.ClearTypeGridFit,
OnePagePerSheet = true,
};
new SheetRender(workbook.Worksheets[0], options).ToImage(0, @“test.emf”);

I’ve attached the test files and a screenshot for your reference. You can find the Asian text in first textbox was rendered in wrong font. Could you please have a look into this?

Thanks

Hi,


Thanks for the template files and sample code with screenshot.

After an initial test, I noticed the issue as you mentioned by using your template file and sample code. I found that Sheet to Image rendering ignores Asian fonts set in the TextBox with cell reference. The Asian text in first TextBox was rendered in wrong font. I have logged a ticket with an id “CELLSNET-45415” for your issue. We will look into it soon.

Once we have an update on it, we will let you know here.

Thank you.

Hi,


We think this is not an error. Even in MS Excel, the text does not get changed with the contents of the cell. And we added an attachment for the issue for your reference.

Thank you.

Hi,


Your screenshot is an expected behaviour. Cell reference in a textbox only references the content in the cell but will use the font settings from the textbox itself.

As Excel cell doesn’t support Asian&Latin fonts (the dialog in my initial screenshot) we usually use textbox with font setting + reference to cell content to achieve the Asian&Latin font settings.

The issue here is when converting the textbox into image, Aspose disregards the font in the textbox. But in Office Excel when copy-pasting as image, Excel will use the font setting from the textbox correctly.

Thanks

Hi,


Thanks for sharing further details.

We need to evaluate your issue thoroughly if Aspose.Cells does ignore Asian fonts settings where as MS Excel does not for the contents in TextBox. I have logged further comments against your issue “CELLSNET-45415” for product team’s reference.

Once we have any new information, we will share it with you here.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for providing the latest version.

It seems the it’s now using the correct font name but the alignment is wrong. The Asian text in the image is at bottom while in the excel the alignment is centre.

Please find the attached screenshot with the difference highlighted.
