PdfSaveOptions missing from Cells 18.3.0

I have updated to the latest version of Aspose.Cells (18.3.0) and the PdfSaveOptions class is missing? The documentation still referrs to this.

Is there an issue with the assembly or nuget package or has the PDF save options actually been removed from the latest versions of the Cells library.


Thanks for your query.

Well, PdfSaveOptions class is there in the APIs. Could you tell us which Aspose.Cells.Dll (from which folder) you are using in your project. For normal .NET versions, make sure you are using the library from any of the following folders under “\lib” directory (when you install from Nuget repos.:

  • net20
  • net35
  • net40
  • net40-client

@Amjad_Sahi - both Rider and Visual Studio for Mac report that this class is missing.

I’m referencing Aspose.Cells in a netstandard2.0 library - below are some screenshots showing the issue:

The nuget cache for Aspose.Cells:

Missing from XML doco:

Things I have tried:

  • Removing the nuget package and re-adding from the project (both in VS for Mac and Rider)
  • Cleaning all local nuget cache (nuget locals all -clear)
  • Rebuilding the solution
  • Cleaning solution

Please advise what else you need to help me diagnose this issue.

@Amjad_Sahi - I have also written a script to reflect on the nuget assembly and it also show that there definitely is no type PdfSaveOptions in the assembly:

The above screenshot also shows the exact scriptcs script that was used.

@Amjad_Sahi - My CircleCI builds using .Net Core containers are also reporting the same errors as my Mac - so the issue is not isolated to my machine.

@Amjad_Sahi - It looks like AutoFitColumns and AutoFitRows on the Worksheet class are also missing?
