We’re pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 5.0.0. This is primarily a maintenance release. We address retaining text items formatting, shape’s layout, shape color and missing shapes improvements. We also address about the fixes of assigning shapes to a layer, export performance and other error messages while loading diagrams or saving to any other supported formats.
Layout Improvements in Visio Shapes
In some scenarios, the exported output files were not following the re-layout page options and placed at the same old locations. The list below describes shortlisted issues of this area:
Fixed: Laying out shapes in the FlowChart, the position of the shapes is not changed.
Fixed: VSD to PDF conversion, additional white space on the top of actual drawing.
Fixed: VSD to SVG conversion, incorrect visibility by overlapping of black color.
Retain Shape Text Items Formatting and Color
The text that you move or copy have a font or other kind of formatting applied to it. The shapes were turned into the black shapes because the API exporter was not preserving fill color. Similarly, the incorrect sequence of line breaks, etc. It was the case with various Visio sample drawings. In this new release, we have included a few such fixes.
Fixed: VSDX to PDF conversion, incorrect sequence of line breaks in the shape’s text.
Fixed: VSDX to HTML conversion, incorrect sequence of line breaks in the shape’s text.
Fixed: VSD to PDF conversion, bullet text lines are going outside the container shape.
Fixed: VSD to HTML conversion, bullet text lines are going outside the container shape.
