What is new in this release?

Aspose development team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Cells for .NET 17.11.0. Smart Art shapes are special shapes that allow users create complex diagrams automatically. Aspose.Cells allows users to detect Smart Art shapes and convert them to Group shape. Users can find if the shape is smart art shape or normal shape using Shape.IsSmartArt property. Users can also convert Smart Art Shape into Group Shape using the Shape.GetResultOfSmartArt() method. It will enable users to handle smart art shape like a group shape. Consequently, users will have access to the individual parts or shapes of the group shape. The sample code on blog announcement page loads a template file containing a smart art shape. It then converts the determine the smart art shape and convert into group shape. Microsoft Excel allows users to create a shared workbook. When users share the workbook, then more than one user can edit the workbook. Aspose.Cells enables users to create a shared workbook with Workbook.Settings.Shared property. Users can protect or unprotect a shared workbook.Aspose.Cells allows users to find the root element name of XML map using XmlMap.RootElementName property. Users can ignore all errors during the conversion process using the PdfSaveOptions.IgnoreError property. This way, conversion process will be completed smoothly without throwing any error or exception but data loss may occur.Users can query cell areas mapped to xml map path with Aspose.Cells using the Worksheet.XmlMapQuery() method. If the path exists, it will return the list of cell areas related to that path inside xml map. Aspose.Cells allows users to render sequence of pages of an Excel file to images using ImageOrPrintOptions.PageIndex and ImageOrPrintOptions.PageCount properties. These properties are useful when there are so many pages in a worksheet but users need to render a few pages only. This will not only save the processing time but also saves the memory consumption of the rendering process. There are some other enhancements included and other exception handled in the new release for the users, such as Copy Paste Behavior Of EnableClipboardCopyPaste and PasteType GridDesktop Properties, Handled exception when using PivotTable.RefreshData, Handled System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException when XLSB is converted to PDF and Handled exception while loading the output XLS file (with OLE Objects, images, etc. excluded). This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below
