(Regression?) Workbook with Waterfall chart cannot be opened from Excel 2016 after copy


When creating a workbook with charts copied from another workbook, the workbook can no longer be opened with the latest Aspose version 20.8.0.


        var workbook = new Workbook(@".\test.xlsx");
        var workbook2 = new Workbook();

If I opened the output from Excel 2016, it would suggest warning message asking me to remove the chart (screenshot attached below). The same file can be opened from the latest Office 365.

I noticed if I used Aspose 20.2.0, the output can be opened in Excel 2016. However, the colour styles are wrong in the 20.2.0 output.

I’ve attached the test files and outputs of both versions for your reference. Could you please help me check if this is a regression?
