Cannot read superscript from cell character

Dear Aspose Team,

I want to test if a particular character in a cell is formatted as superscript:

FontSetting setting = cell.Characters(i, 1);

if (setting.Font.IsSuperscript)

This works fine with most Excel files I have tested.

But now there is one file where it does not work. Please see the Excel file attached.

In A1 there is a superscript used but Aspose will always give false, e.g.:


returns false although it should be true

Aspose.Cells version:

Sure, we will keep you posted with updates in this regard. For now the ticket is pending for analysis and is in the queue with other tasks. As soon as we have completed the preliminary analysis of the said behavior, we will be in a better position to comment when we can provide the fix.

Hi again,

Please consider using the following piece of code for your requirement. We will update the property of new FontSetting object generated by Cell.Characters method with future releases


var workbook = new Workbook(“D:/superscript.xlsx”);
var cells = workbook.Worksheets[0].Cells;
var cell = cells[“A1”];
FontSetting[] settings = cell.GetCharacters();
for (int i = 0; i < settings.Length; i++)
FontSetting setting = settings[i];
if (setting.Font.IsSuperscript)



Thanks for your using Aspose.Cells.
