Technical Article – Working Solution for Chart Re-sizing
An Excel chart embedded as an OLE object in a PowerPoint presentation using Aspose.Slides for Java has different sizes before and after chart activation. This is caused by the fact that the spreadsheet and the OLE object each has a set size. When a chart is activated from a PowerPoint slide, a certain amount of negotiation is performed between the two applications. This affects the size of the embedded object when it is closed again. Working with Microsoft, we found a solution to this issue. Click here to read the complete article about Working Solution for Chart Re-sizing.
