Excel workbook images and objects grouped are distorted when save as pdf


We recently bought our Aspose products license but we have some issues related to convert excel workbooks to pdf.

This is one of the case we have:

We have a set of images and other excel objects grouped, the view in MS excel looks ok but when convert it to pdf some objects of the group are moved out of its original position.

My code is very simple:

Workbook excelWorkbook = new Workbook(sourceFilenamePath);

// sourceFilenamePath is a string

excelWorkbook.Save(targetFileNamePath, SaveFormat.Pdf);

// targetFileNamePath is a string

the whole process is more complicated but I could reproduce the issue whit this simple code.

My environment is this:

Excel sheet: MS Office 2003.

MS .NET Framework: 2.0

Aspose.Cells.dll version: 5.3.2

If I ungroup the objects and then try to convert again it works well but that is not an option because we have hundreds of files like this then we need to resolve the issue without change the source excel files.

I had attached the source xls file and the pdf created.

Can you help to investigate where the issue is?
