Ink Annotations become regular images after conversion


After conversion Excel 2003 files with Ink Annotations to xlsm format and then conversion back to XLS - Ink Annotations become regular images. Maybe they are already converted to images during first xls - xlsm conversion, but can’t check this, because output file is corrupted. Please see sample files (71.2 KB). I’ve used latest Aspose.Cells 18.7.

Many thanks,
