Enhanced Export of Visio with Embedded Excel to a PDF

Aspose.Diagram API has support of manipulating the embedded OLE objects. In few reported use cases, clients were converting the source Visio diagrams to PDFs and facing the problem of missing embedded Excel worksheet. We have enhanced the export of Visio diagrams with embedded worksheet. It is now better than previous.

This version also addresses the issues of incomplete rendering of the shapes, extra whitespace around the actual drawing, the invisibility of group shapes and the general formatting problems of the diagram. These enhancements and bug fixes improve performance and accuracy of Aspose.Diagram API. Please check a list of the resolved defects:
