Accessing the shape name and creating charts question

In trying your product I have a couple of questions:

1) Is there a way to access the shape name in Aspose.Slides?

2) I was not able to use LINQ in Aspose.Slides.

3) I noticed charts are created in MS Excel format using Aspose.Cells and then embedded as a OLE Object using Aspose.Slides, is this the only method? Will you be able to create charts using Aspose.Slides and not embedding it as a OLE Object?

Will there be any updates that would address any of these issues?

thanks.

Hello,

thank you for your quick response.

<span style=“font-family: “Times New Roman”; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;”>

I saw that you could use the alternative text in the help files, but I was hoping you could access the actual shape name not the alternative text.

<span style=“font-family: “Arial”,“sans-serif”;”>

I was hoping you would have something in the line of how charts are created now in PowerPoint 2007 not using OLE Object<o:p>. The end user would still need to edit the charts.</o:p>

thanks
