Copying a workbook colours a text shape's background for no reason


The following code will result in an output file where the text shapes have a blue background (similar to one of the pie pieces) on the attached file.

var wb = new Workbook(“TextShape.xlsx”);

var wb2 = new Workbook();



I have also had a problem with the dynamic text (coming from Sheet1) disappearing in the output file but I have been unable to reproduce with a simple Excel file for now.

Best regards.
