Chart Area Soft Edge is MIssing in PDF & PPTX

Hi Team,

Please find the attached ''DataLabelIssue.xlsx" excel.
If you see the charts are surrounded by border. I have set the soft edge radius with below line of code:


After converting the excel to PDF the line has become very thin.
In case of PPTX when we are running in UNIX operating system the line cannot be seen.

Please find the attached excel and pdf generated for your reference and also the code for the conversion.

Note: Cannot provide you the sample for PPTX.

We have evaluated the presented scenario from Aspose.Cells’ perspective while using the latest release, that is; Aspose.Cells for Java, and we are able to notice the said problem in resultant PDF as well as PNG files. In order to further investigate the matter, we have logged tickets separately for each resultant file format.

Aspose.Cells does not support SoftEdge for Chart.

Please set the fill of chart area to none before generating report for making border of cells shown.


ChartCollection charts = worksheet.getCharts();
for(int i=0; i < charts.getCount();i++){
Chart chart = charts.get(i);
