Automatic image compression Excel not preserved


If I save an excel file with one or more images on it the option to compress images is not preserved (in office 365) after opening and saving an excel workbook through Aspose.cells . (excel options -> advanced -> image size and quality -> do not compress images is turned OFF in the file). If I then do a simple

lFileName = “AsposeImgSettingTest.xlsx”;
lSaveName = “AsposeImgSettingTest-out.xlsx”;
Workbook lWorkbook =
new Workbook( lFileName );
lWorkbook.save( lSaveName); // FileFormatType.HTML );

The option is suddenly turned on in that location in the output document (again, when opened and viewed in excel). With both the input and output documents the lWorkbook.getSettings().getAutoCompressPictures() call seems to return false.

I have included the test excel files (simple excel with 1 picture in it).
I am using Aspose.Cells for Java 17.5.0 .
