Wrong vertical alignment of cell text on convert to pdf excel with pivot table


When we convert Excel with pivot table to Pdf, vertical alignment of some cells text changes. Native excel convertion works fine.
That behavior reproduces at https://products.aspose.app/cells/ru/conversion/xlsm-to-pdf and in code with latest Aspose.Cells.

How it converts in Aspose:

book.xlsm, aspose.pdf, excel.pdf:

Sample code:

  var loadOptions = new LoadOptions(FileFormatUtil.DetectFileFormat(filename).LoadFormat);
  loadOptions.DefaultStyleSettings.VerticalAlignment = TextAlignmentType.Bottom;
  using var workbook = new Workbook(filename, loadOptions);

  var saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();
  var resultFilename = Path.ChangeExtension(filename, ".pdf");
  workbook.Save(resultFilename, saveOptions);


Thanks for the sample file and screenshots.

With presented snippet now works fine.
But without

loadOptions.DefaultStyleSettings.VerticalAlignment = TextAlignmentType.Bottom;

cells with Bottom vertical alignment converts like with Center vertical alignment.

Is it normal that property DefaultStyleSettings.VerticalAlignmentof must be assigned for properly convertion?


Yes, it is normal and your understanding it correct. You need to use the line:
loadOptions.DefaultStyleSettings.VerticalAlignment = TextAlignmentType.Bottom;
to load the file with (bottom) vertical alignment for cells which you require.
