XLSB tabs losing colors

Hi Aspose,

After merely saving the Excel .xlsb file with Aspose.Cells 8.4.2 for Java, the tabs are losing all of their original colors. See attachment for screenshot and the .xlsb file which can reproduce this problem.

// Open Excel file.
final Workbook workbook = new Workbook(“C:\Temp\ColorTabs.xlsb”);

// Save Excel file.

Interestingly, if the original file is .xlsm, the colors are retained.

Please advise how we can resolve this issue. Thanks.

Yes, v8.5.0.2 has fixed the issue. The tab colors are now retained.

However v8.5.0.2 is causing a CellsException regarding “more than one token in stack”. I have created another topic about it.
