Exception "Data modification is not available" while reading PPTX file using Aspose.Slides for .NET(C#)

Hi,
this PPTX file can’t be opened in 18.5.
The error is:
Aspose.Slides.PptxReadException: ‘Chart uses external workbook. Data modification is not available.’

The file can be opened fine with Aspose.Slides 18.2.

Best Regards,
Vassil
