Shapes are not positioned correctly in excel to pdf conversions


When converting an excel file with shapes to pdf with excel, the placement of the shapes is kept.
When doing the same with aspose the shapes are moved, sometimes even ending up outside of the visible area of the resulting pdf.

I have attached some files showing the result: (731.2 KB)

  • Stormtrooper.xlsx - The original excel file with some shapes in the form of speech bubbles.
  • Excel_Pdf.pdf - A pdf of the original created from excel (placements are kept).
  • Aspose_Pdf.pdf - A pdf of the original created with aspose cells (speech bubbles have moved).

The “Aspose_Pdf” was created with Aspose.Cells v20.5.0 and the following C# code:

var workbook = new Workbook("Stormtrooper.xlsx");
workbook.Save("Aspose_Pdf.pdf", SaveFormat.Pdf);
