Aspose.Slides problem in reading SmartArt from pptx created by Office 2013 automation

The problem appeared in the system with an Office 2013 installed.

Ppt with smartart.ppt is an original ppt file.

Ppt with smartart.pptx is result saved by PowerPoint 2013

~dwcskfsw.xe2tmp.pptx is a result of conversion from ppt to pptx which was done using
Office 2013 automation.

Power Point 2013 or 2007 can open and show SmartArt from either ~dwcskfsw.xe2tmp.pptx or smartart.pptx with no problem

The difference in those pptx are in drawing1.xml :

in ~dwcskfsw.xe2tmp\ppt\diagrams\drawing1.xml has no information

in smartart\Ppt with smartart\ppt\diagrams\drawing1.xml has smartArt information.

(Diagrams folder contains smartArt data).

as result Aspose can not read properly smartArt data from ~dwcskfsw.xe2tmp

and conversion by Aspose.Slide from ~dwcskfsw.xe2tmp to jpeg which we use showing no smartart
stuff at all.


Thank you for sharing the details.

As I understand, you are facing the issue after converting from PPT to PPTX and then once you use that PPTX to JPEG, the smart art is missing. I tested with the latest version of Aspose.Slides for .NET v14.6.0 and I am unable to reproduce the issue. Please try with the latest version and let us know if it works fine at your end.

Thanks & Regards,
