Hi Team!

There is an exception when I trying to save ppt file to ppt but when I save these ppt files into pptx there is no problem.

presentation.Save(outputPath, SaveFormat.Ppt);

@erdeiga,
I have checked the save of all presentations to PPT format and found no exceptions. Could you share a simple standalone project for investigating the issue, please?

@Andrey_Potapov,
I checked it and it seems like it’s only happening when I replace some text in the presentations. I attached a project so you can reproduce it hopefully. (I could reproduced it in my Linux machine)

I also noticed that one of the attached file (68ed30a693904b7abd5fd6379fd492ea.ppt) saved successfully but some of the text box orientation is changed. Can you also check this?

Thanks for your help!

@erdeiga,
Thank you for the project sample. I have reproduced the problem and got the same exceptions. It seems there is a bug in SlideUtil.GetAllTextBoxes method. I have logged the issue in our tracking system with ID SLIDESNET-42418. Our development team will investigate the issue. You will be notified when it is fixed.

I checked it, but I have not noticed any differences in text boxes. Could you share a screenshot of those differences, please?

This is some kind of LibreOffice Impress viewing issue because I checked the file in MS Office PowerPoint 2016 and there wasn’t any orientation issue so this is not an Aspose.Slides bug.

@erdeiga,
Yes, you are right. There is some bug in saving PPT to PPT that is visible in LibreOffice Impress. I have logged the issue in our tracking system with ID SLIDESNET-42419. Our development team will investigate the issue. You will be notified when it is fixed.
