Aspose development team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Cells for Android 8.0.0 . There are some valuable features in this month’s release. Aspose.Cells for Android 8.0.2 provides getter & setter attributes for the TextDirection method in the Shape class. The API now lets developers control the direction of the text in shapes including the spreadsheet comments. The setTextDirection method accepts a value from the constants TextDirectionType, and applies the text direction as Left to Right, Right to Left or to Context. Another notable enhancement has been made to the HtmlLoadOptions class by exposing the Boolean ConvertFormulasData attribute. Setting this property to true when using the setConvertFormulasData method allows the API to interpret any string value starting with character “=” as a formula. Aspose.Cells for Android 8.0.2 has provided fixes for several important issues, such as rendering & manipulating charts, converting Excel to PDF format and rendering and manipulating PivotTables. This release includes plenty of improved features and bug fixes as listed below
