Broken Links after using Aspose.Slides

Hi there,

After using Aspose.Slides API to set an ExternalHyperlinkClick with a valid file URI, the link becomes unusable.

This occurs in the specific case when there are non-English alphabet characters in the file path (characters not used in US-ASCII).

Setting of the ExternalHyperlinkClick with such a file URL results in any non English alphabet characters encoded with their corresponding Web URL %-encoding. This is fine when referencing the file via the browser URL bar, but not in the case of creating a working link in a Microsoft document to non-Web location.

Example URLs:

Using Aspose to modify:
file://C:/some directory/Documents/test/Prüfstandsanzeige_BDV.docx
to:
file://C:/some directory/test/subfolder/Prüfstandsanzeige_BDV.docx

The resulting link path is:
file://C:/some directory/Documents/test/Pr%C3%BCfstandsanzeige_BDV.docx

This will of course fail to find the file as file paths do not use Web URI %-encoding for non-English alphabet characters.

@JohnGrahamLT,

I have observed the issue shared by you and request you to please share the source presentation and working sample project reproducing the issue on your end. Before this, I also request you to please try using Aspose.Slides for .NET 18.8 on your end.

This problem doesn’t exist in Aspose.Slides version 18.12.

Thanks.
