Font color of "notes" changed to white when copying selective data from excel workbook to other workbook using Aspose

We have xlsb file from which we are copying data to other excel file using Aspose.Cells where we observed the final output is having “Notes” font color changed from black(original) to white.

Please find below the console application for the same (302.6 KB)

Please find the original excel file attached below (217.9 KB)

With the help of above console application I am saving all the sheet by sheet output to see the difference.
Please find below the observation

I did test your scenario/case using your sample app with your template Excel file. I could not notice significant difference in the copied data in your mentioned output file. Could you please share more details and some screenshots to highlight the difference/issue by comparing source sheet(s) in the template Excel file Vs copied sheet(s).
