Any way to split a large powerpoint file into several smaller powerpoint files?

We’re using Aspose Slides for Java 17.8. We have several large powerpoint files that users submit to us for scanning and highlighting text. Our general process is to always convert all files (Word, Powerpoint, HTML, email, Excel, etc.) to PDF and then do searching and highlighting in PDF.

In particular we have a 76MB powerpoint file that causes lots of issues when using the Aspose APIs to convert to PDF. So we thought maybe we should try to chop the 76MB file into several smaller files and then convert those smaller files to PDF, then merge those PDFs back together.

Is there any way to split a large powerpoint file into several smaller powerpoint files using the Aspose Slides for Java API?

@saqib.chowdhry,

I have observed your requirements and like to share that you can use slide cloning feature to copy individual slide or slides from source presentation and copy them in target presentation. Later you can save that presentation and this way you can generate a other presentations files comprising of remaining slides. For your below comments:

I like to share that 76 MB is a huge presentation and when you export that to PDF, it is going to compute alot of resources as rendering is performed in memory.
