Aspose team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 16.11.0. The new version of the API allows developers to insert a text shape in the Visio diagram. Developers can also now retrieve an ActiveX control to edit all its available properties. This month’s release also improves performance in converting VSD diagrams to PDF format and covers a number of regular bug fixes and enhancements. The Microsoft Office Visio application allows users to insert a text shape by clicking “A Text” button available in the Home tab under the Tools section. Using Aspose.Diagram API, developers can now achieve this feature in their project applications. From now onward, they may not add any alternative shapes from the stencil files. The last couple of Aspose.Diagram API releases has the support of inserting an ActiveX control in the Visio page. Developers were not able to retrieve and edit an ActiveX control. Using this new version, developers can retrieve an ActiveX control from a shape object, and then edit its properties. This version also addresses the issues of general formatting problems, the invisibility of the group shapes, rendering cross signs in place of the various shapes and other minor layout problems of the drawings. These enhancements and bug fixes improve performance and accuracy of Aspose.Diagram API. Here is the list of important enhancements and bugs fixes in the new version.
