Opening and saving Excel file changes z-order of image and drawing


I have a spreadsheet that has an image and then a textbox on top of the image to display a traffic-light style graphic. When I open the spreadsheet in Cells.Net and save a copy it changes the z-order of the image and textbox so that the textbox label is now behind the image.

Is this a bug? Can I workaround it or can I get a fix? The spreadsheet that exhibits the problem is attached. The C# code to show the problem is as follows:

using System.IO;
using Aspose.Cells;

namespace TestAsposeZOrder
class Program
static Program()
License license = new License();

static void Main(string[] args)
using (FileStream fstream = new FileStream(args[0], FileMode.Open))
Workbook workbook = new Workbook(fstream);




Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Please download and use the latest version: Aspose.Cells
for .NET v8.5.0.4
it works fine.

I have tested this issue with the following code and it generated correct output excel file which I have attached for your reference.


string filePath = @“F:\Shak-Data-RW\Downloads\TFS11661.xlsx”;

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(filePath);

workbook.Save(filePath + “.out.xlsx”);

Thanks - this does indeed now work.

Could you direct me to the release notes for the latest aspose.cells so that I can see what has changed between the version I was using (7.7.2) and the latest.
