PageBreaks format in Excel and ClosedXML RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I have 5 Excel files with pagebreaks format, but when I write in these files with ClosedXML and C#, the pagebreaks format disappears and the normal format appears. Nevertheless, when I open the files and I go to Display option then PageBreak, it returns to the right format (PageBreak format).
    In fact, I would like that after writing in Excel files with ClosedXML, the PageBreak format remains (PAgeBreak format). 
    Do you know how to keep pagebreaks format in these files after writing in these files with ClosedXML, please?

  • Hi speed780,

    Thank you for posting here.

    When I created an excel file with page breaks, I found that even if I just closed and reopened the file, the page breaks would disappear, but when I click View => Page Break Preview, I see that the page breaks still exist.

    I am using Office 2016, and I don’t know which version you are using, so I want you to confirm whether this problem is caused by ClosedXML or the characteristics of Excel itself.

    Best Regards,
