Hi Matt,

Thank you for detailed explanation.

I have observed your comments and like to share with you that many of the issues are appearing because of the PowerPoint version installed on your end. For example the error number 3 on slide 7 and error number 3 on slide 2, which are rendered in PDF exactly as displayed by PowerPoint, see attached screenshot ExactlyLikePDF.JPG for your kind reference.

Some of the issues are reported for the problem with shadow rendering, 3D objects and lightening rendering. I would like to add that aforementioned rendering support is not available at the moment. I request you to please try installing latest version of PowerPoint and then share your kind feedback with us if you still face the issue. We will be glad to help you further.

Best Regards,

Hi Ahmed,
All screenshots were made for Aspose.Slides.NET.15.9.0 version. And it seems that some of the issues was fixed in the 16.3.0 release. I reviewed these screenshots with latest version of PowerPoint (16.0.6001.1068):

LossOfEffects - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects_2
LossOfEffects2 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects2_2
LossOfEffects3 - all actual except note 4
LossOfEffects4 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects4_2 (significant part is missing)
LossOfEffects5 - all actual
LossOfEffects6 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects6_2
LossOfEffects7 - all actual
LossOfEffects8 - all actual
LossOfEffects9 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects9_2 (there is clipped text)
LossOfEffects10 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects10_2 (wrong text alignment)
LossOfEffects11 - all actual
LossOfEffects12 - all actual
LossOfEffects13 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects13_2 (color is missing, texture broken)
LossOfEffects14 - all actual
LossOfEffects15 - replaced by actual render JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects15_2

As you can see there is some significant regression in rendering that prevent us for upgrading on newer version (JA_ImportedFile_PPT_LossOfEffects4_2, etc)

Hi Andriy,

I researched all listed issues, please check below:

SLIDESNET-37357 ([XDAS-796](https://jira.cogniance.com/browse/XDAS-796))
– This issue is partially resolved. Legend issue is fixed. Shadow
effect implementation is postponed since it also depends of 3D effects
feature. This issue could be resolved after 4th quarter 2017.

Unfortunately issue with legends is still reproducible with Aspose.Words 17.1

Please see screenshots attached.

Could you please provide estimates for the fix.

Hi Matt,


I have observed your comments and it seems your issue is related to Aspose.Words. Can you please make an inquiry in Aspose.Words forum in this regard as the current thread is related to issue in Aspose.Slides for .NET.

Many Thanks,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as SLIDESNET-37354) have been fixed in this update.
