Bug - Adding HTML Rich Text in Excel using Aspose.Cells: Font size reduced to 1 for multiple bullet points

For a given worksheet of type Aspose.Cells.Worksheet , the value of cell can not parse HTML enrich text properly. The font of the text in the nested bullet points is reduced to 1, when opening the excel file. Bullet points and indentation are displayed correctly after the new update but the font size of the text is mixed up.

I am using Aspose.Cells v24.3 and have tested the versions > v24.3 as well. But the problem still exists.


string value = "<b>Example Test</b>
        <li>Example 1
                <li><span style="font-size:1.16rem;text-transform:inherit">Example 1.1 </span>
                        <li><span style="font-size:1.16rem;text-transform:inherit">Example 1.1.1</span> </li>
        <li>Example 2
                <li>Example 2.1 </li>
                <li>Example 2.2</li>
worksheet.Cells[1,1].HtmlString =  value;

Expected Output:

Example Test

  • Example 1
    • Example 1.1
      • Example 1.1.1
  • Example 2
    • Example 2.1
    • Example 2.2


Thanks for the details.

After an initial testing, I was able to reproduce the issue you mentioned. I found font size reduced to 1 for multiple bullet points when adding HTML rich text to worksheet cell. The font of the text in the nested bullet points is reduced to 1, when opening the output Excel file.

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

string value = "<b>Example Test</b><div><ul><li>Example 1<ul><li><span style=\"font-size:1.16rem;text-transform:inherit\">Example 1.1 </span> <ul><li><span style=\"font-size:1.16rem;text-transform:inherit\">Example 1.1.1</span> </li></ul></li></ul></li><li>Example 2<ul><li>Example 2.1 </li><li>Example 2.2</li></ul></li></ul></div>";
worksheet.Cells[1,1].HtmlString =  value;
