Poor quality of embedded scaled chart

I have combined solutions for embedding chart and resizing its frame. Unfortunately the final result presents two problems:

1. Poor quality of the initial presentation when fonts are scaled preserving aspect ratio (e.g. resulting in either too wide or too narrow fonts).

2. Activating and then de-activating frame changes the size of the final object together with relatives sizes of the constituents of the chart (e.g. the legend and the plot area).

The source code of the program is attached.

Hi Boris,

I have worked with the code snippet shared by you and have observed the Ole Frame getting resized on every time I enable or disable that. An issue with ID 23603 has been created in our issue tracking system to further investigate and resolve the issue. Secondly as far as font scaling issue, I feel if you adjust the width and height of the Ole Frame with respect the ratio of slide width and height, you will not observe this issue any more. I have attached the generated presentation in which I used frame width 5 and height 4. You will observe that the font don't seemed to be skewed or scaled that much.

Thanks and Regards,
