How to decrease the plot area for chart

Need assistance in decreasing plot area for a chart using Aspose.Cells for Java API.

Used the following link for changing the position & size of the chart but it is not reflected.

Attached sample excel with the chart for your reference.
SampleExcel.zip (8.8 KB)

Thanks in advance.


Please notice, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned. I tried to minimize the plot area but to no avail. I used the following sample code with your template file but the plot area is not changed.
Sample code:

         Workbook workbook = new Workbook("f:\\files\\SampleExcel.xls");

         Worksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0);

         Chart chart = worksheet.getCharts().get(0);
