Glued Visio Shapes Retrieval, VSD to VDX & PDF Export are Enhanced using .NET

This new release enables .NET Developers to Export Shapes with Shadow, Read VSSX Stencil & Identify Glued or Connected Visio Shapes inside .NET Apps

Online PR News – 28-April-2016 – Lane Cove, NSW – What’s new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 6.2.0. This version makes some nice improvements and gives accuracy in retrieving the glued Visio shape ID as well as improves manipulations associated to apply formatting in the whole diagram when converting to any supported format. This version also incorporates several tweaks and bug fixes reported in the Aspose forums. We’re truly thankful to our Aspose worldwide community that is the heartbeat of everything. Aspose.Diagram API offers a GluedShapes method in the Shape class which returns an array that contains the IDs of the shapes that are glued to a shape. All incoming and outgoing nodes could be identified. In some reported use cases, clients were not able to identify incoming and outgoing nodes because of the duplicate and incorrect shape IDs being retrieved. This version covers fixes of these defects. Many of our clients convert Visio drawings to any other file type supported by Aspose.Diagram API and report their problematic Visio samples where they’re facing the problems like the wrong line breaks in the shape’s text, displaced shapes, missing shapes, duplications in the text items, incorrect font alignment, changes in the shape appearance, diagram properties are not being preserved and many more. In this version, we have fixed a large number of such problems. Here is the list of important enhancements and bugs fixes in the new version.
