I was wondering if you support, or plan to support the preservation of Equations in Objects (Shapes, Text Boxes, Etc)
Thanks for looking into it for me.
When I copy sheets from one spreadsheet to another my equations get turned into text in a textbox. There is nothing fancy about my equations, they just sit on the sheet. Is there any way of preserving equations. I'd even accept turning them into images if that would keep the equation looking correct.
Update. It is not the copy operation. If I load an Excel file with an equation in it and immediately save it, the equation is converted to text in a textbox.
As said, the equation is not being converted: It is always a textbox (also in the original file). The problem is that Excel 2010 added some extra formatting to allow the textbox to show equations, and it is saving both versions in the file. FlexCel is reading the oldest version available (2007) to ensure all Excel users can read the file it creates. We should modify it to read both versions and save both too, but this isn't technically simple. As said, I'll study what can be done and let you know. Right now, FlexCel is behaving in this case as if an user of Excel 2007 opened and saved the file.
Any progress on reading Excel 2010 format yet?
It is in our todo list. We are planning a new release for monday, and while I am not sure it will make it for that, we'll try it. If not, it will be in the release after monday.
