Add Extra Elements to page number not working in powerpoint 2007 presentations


At Assette we use Aspose.Slides to generate reports, we recently upgraded our product to support office 2007 (but compatibility mode presentations).

we had a code that ads extra elementst to the page number place holder to add elements such as 1 of n 1-n . this is working fine for the presentations created with office 2003, but for office 2007 this doesn’t work in the slide master it shows the page number formattings, but doesnt show in actual slides. how do i ressolve this. here is my code

Hi Aneef,

Thanks for considering Aspose.Slides.

We regret to inform you that PPTX format doesn’t have Meta characters, so no MetaCharacterType class implementation for PPTX is available. Moreover, Header/Footer is also currently unavailable in Aspose.Slides. As a work around, you can please try adding a text frame containing the current slide position and a total slides in presentation in your own format on individual slide level. Unfortunately in PPTX, you cannot add on Master Slide level as in case of PPT.

We are sorry for your nuisance,
