What?s new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Slides for .NET 14.6.0 has been released. We have introduced the long awaited support for cloning or copying shapes within presentation slides in this release. Now, it is possible to replicate the shapes from source slide by adding or inserting them in target slide shape collection. For more details about the shape cloning, please visit the documentation article Cloning Shapes in Slides. Now, one can also set the predefined presentation view type for the presentation when it is going to get opened in PowerPoint. For more details about how to use this feature, please visit the documentation article Save Presentation with predefined View Type. We have also made improvement in charts section as well. Now, you can add the Error Bars for MSO charts using Aspose.Slides. We have improved the chart rendering support and have resolved certain incurring issues including missing charts, missing chart labels, improperly rendered chart axis and missing chart bars issues in exported PDF and slide thumbnails. We have also resolved issues related to presentation access, saving and exporting to PDF that earlier resulted in exceptions when using older product version. We have also made some good improvement in SmartArt rendering as well and resolved the issues pertaining to improper rendering of SmartArt shapes. The issues related to improperly rendered text and missing hyperlinks in exported PDF and images have also been rectified. We have enhanced chart support in this release and have resolved issues related to setting the chart category direction, formatting chart labels, setting font related properties for different chart entities and radar chart support. We have made several enhancements to the new API. Please visit the documentation article Public API and Backwards Incompatible Changes in Aspose.Slides for .NET 14.6.0 for further reference. We are hopeful to overcome these limitations in upcoming versions.
