Rotated text boxes are rendered incorrectly

My application is receiving an Excel file from a client, which often turns out to contain rotated text boxes (although the text itself is not rotated).

When saved as pdf through Aspose, these text boxes are rendered incorrectly.
Only some of the text is shown, and some ugly lines are added on three of the sides.

When the text boxes are aligned correctly manually first, the pdf looks good.

When saving to pdf from within Excel, all the text boxes are rendered correctly, just as if they had been aligned manually.

Is there some way to iterate through all such text boxes and align them programmatically before saving to pdf?
