Aspose.Diagram for .NET logoWe’re pleased to announce that the new version 6.4.0 of Aspose.Diagram for .NET API is now live. This new version primarily improves converting Visio diagram to other supported file formats. It preserves the formatted data, text items, alignments, proper spacing between the shapes and overall structural layout of the diagram. This version also covers fixes of reported errors and various other enhancements.

Render Multiple Colors in the Group Shape

Using Aspose.Diagram API, developers can create their own custom group shape from several non-group shapes. They might need a shape of the system that is not in one of the standard templates, and then fill colors in each sub shape to display various sections of the system. Similarly, one of our clients was trying to convert a Visio diagram made up of multiple traffic light shapes, but the traffic light colors were not being preserved in the resulting file. To accommodate this aspect, we have enhanced the API for rendering colors in Visio shapes.

Border Style of the Shape

Using Aspose.Diagram API, developers can change the color, weight, or style of the outside border of a shape, or remove the border altogether. Visio diagrams can hold much more information than just graphics, so it is crucial for diagram export to preserve the same border style, arrows, connector line format and so on. This version has enhanced preserving border styles of the shapes on exporting the Visio diagram.

Alignment and Absolute Positioning of the Shapes

Our clients export diagrams from Visio into another format for sharing with other stakeholders. The ability to export a Visio diagram provides developers a fast and easy programmatic way, consistent with the Microsoft Office Visio application. The export feature demands accuracy in alignment and absolute positioning of the shapes. We’re continuously improving it in the each version and ensuring that all improvement activities are implemented and followed successfully.

This version also covers the issues of missing textual items of the shapes, partial rendering of the text, alignment of the shape text, wrong position of the shape and error messages while creating an empty VSDX or converting an existing VSDX to PDF. These bug fixes also improve the performance of Aspose.Diagram API. Please check a list of the resolved defects:
