Unable to select the entire column / row data after pdf to pptx conversion

hi Team,
Using Aspose.PDF we have converted a pdf to pptx.
I want to select and copy complete column data of table. But only part of the column is getting selected not entire. Attached screenshots of the issue.
can you please let us know if there is any configuration we can do so entire row/column will be selectable in the generated pptx.

Can you please share the source code and the files so that we may try to reproduce the same on our end.

Attached sample pdfs and output pptx. The candlestick.pptx if we try to select quantity column we will see this behavior.
please let us know whether this is a limitation or with any configuration or additional conversions steps we can .achieve the above use case.

I request you to try the following code and share if the output is acceptable for selecting all the data in the table.


This might not be acceptable by our customers as even setOptimizeTextBoxes(true) it is not allowing to copy only entire column data (eg: quantity column in candlestick pptx).

other problem is when pasted in excel we see all columns data in a single cell.
Format is not also not preserved.
