Office 2016 support?

Hi Aspose team,

do you have timelines when Office 2016 will be officially supported?


Hi Oliver,

New feature requests to support Office 2016 for Aspose.Words, Aspose.Cells and Aspose.Slides have been logged into our issue tracking system as WORDSNET-12458, CELLSNET-43937 and SLIDESNET-36855 respectively. We will keep you updated on these issues in this thread.

In the first phase, opening and saving of Office 2016 documents will be supported. More features will be added gradually as we receive more requests.

Best Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for considering Aspose.

We have tested Aspose.Cells on Microsoft Office (Excel) 2016 and it worked quite well. So Aspose.Cells does support Office 2016.

Is there anything that can be shared on this yet? Are Words and Slides still being worked on for Office 2016?

Hi Phillip,

Yes, our product teams are working on Aspose.Words and Aspose.Slides. We will update you as soon as the issues are fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Hi,

May i know what’s the least version to support MS Office 2016?

Hi,

Latest versions of Aspose.Cells support Office 2016 however it will take some time to resolve all issues for Aspose.Words and Aspose.Slides.

Best Regards,

Hello,

We are also interested in Office 2016 support. Do you have any updates on Words and Slides?

Hi,


Thank you for the inquiry. We’re sorry to share with you that the linked ticket IDs WORDSNET-12458 and SLIDESNET-36855 are not resolved yet.

In reference to the ticket ID WORDSNET-12458, initially opening and saving of Office 2016 documents will be supported. More features will be added gradually as we receive more requests. Unfortunately, there is no ETA available for this feature at the moment. We apologize for your inconvenience.

In reference to the ticket ID SLIDESNET-36855, Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 has the backward compatibility support. However, there are some new features added in Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 that will continually be added in API. We cannot say the API will have the support of all PowerPoint 2016 at once.

You may give us details of any specific problem. We’ll fix it for your convenience.

Hello,

Let me confirm the latest Aspose.Diagrams support Visio 2016?
How about the latest Aspose.Words and Aspose.Slides?

Thank you,
Atsuo Nakatani

Hi Atsuo,


Thanks for contacting support.

Aspose.Words, Aspose.Cells and Aspose.Diagram support files created with Office 2016 and they support opening and saving of Office 2016 documents and the features supported by older versions of MS Office. However the features which are specifically part of Office 2016, are currently not fully supported programatically by our APIs but we are working on supporting these features and they will become part of our future release versions.

Please try using our API’s and in case you encounter any issue, please share the input files. We will test the scenario in our environment and will share our findings.

Thank you for your prompt reply. How about Aspose.Sildes? Thank you, Atsuo

Hi Atsuo,


Sorry for the delayed response.

Aspose.Slides do support PowerPoint 2016 but the specific features introduced in Office 2016 are not supported yet. However we plan to support them in upcoming release versions. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Hi Aspose team,

suppose this scenario:

  • I open document generated with Office 2016
  • make change in area that is supported (for example, hyperlink)
  • save document again using Aspose components

Will document still work meaning change will be there and new Office 2016 generated content will stay (you are not going to remove it)? Nothing will be gone?

Thanks,
Oliver

@dr_oli,
Thank you for the inquiry. You are right that the supported feature will work and the change will remain in the output of Office 2016 document. However, if you come across any such scenario where the API does not work as expected, then send us the complete details of the use case. We will investigate and share our findings with you.

Best Regards,
Imran Rafique

@dr_oli,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-12458) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 17.10 update and this Aspose.Words for Java 17.10 update.

Hi,

May i know what’s the least version to support MS Office word 2016?

@mabbasicontracts,

Thanks for contacting support.

The complete support of MS Office Word 2016 is provided in current release of Aspose.Words for .NET 17.10. However, a partial support of word 2016 document was provided in version 17.3 and in case you need to use older version, you may consider using Aspose.Words for .NET 17.3.

Hi ,

Thanks for your quick response. We have license for using free upgrades until 24 March 2011, but we want to use Aspose.Word 17.10 for full support of MS Office word 2016. We need developers/test license for testing/Dvelopment purpose, After successful testing we will purchase actual license. Please provide developers/test license for Aspose.Word 17.10.

Thanks!
