View changed to protected while converting XLS->XLSM->XLS

Hi Aspose,

Today I’ve discovered the same issue with Aspose.Cells 18.7.1 and xls without password. Attaching all 3 files (TrackChanges2003.zip (15.8 KB)): original xls, xls converted to xlsm, xlsm converted to xls (where issue is observed). Let me know if I need to open separate ticket for this.

Many thanks,
Alex Shloma
