Hi Irfan,


Thank you for writing to Aspose support team.

Regarding point 1 and 3:

This issue is already under consideration and in our upcoming release, we have managed to resolve issues which were faced while using NONE mode. You may please wait a little bit and try the new release with None mode as its performance is better in comparison to other modes.

For setting the lookup value of existing extended attribute, you may please use following sample code. Ignore the deprecated warning as that is related to modifying the ValueList. This warning will be removed soon.

Project project1 = new Project(“TextExtendedAttributeWithLookup_out.mpp”);

var taskExtendedAttributeText2 = project1.ExtendedAttributes[0].CreateExtendedAttribute(project1.ExtendedAttributes[0].ValueList[0]);

var task3 = project1.RootTask.Children.Add("Task 3");

task3.ExtendedAttributes.Add(taskExtendedAttributeText2);

project1.Save("TextExtendedAttributeWithLookup_out2.mpp", SaveFileFormat.MPP);
