Is there a way to render OLE objects using getThumbnail?


I am trying to render the slides from a pptx file as images, using SlideEx.getThumbnail(). Unfortunately, this does not work for slides with an embedded word document.

I have attached three files to demonstrate this issue.

A file with some embedded OLE objects: abnormal_aspect_ratio-23944-embedded_OLE_object.pptx

A screenshot of slide 20 from the file, rendered using Powerpoint for Mac: embeddedoleppt.png

The image from slide 20, rendered using SlideEx.getThumbnail(): embededoleaspose.gif

I know that these are just embedded Word documents, so they will be difficult to handle properly. I am wondering if there is a way at all? Perhaps we can use your Words product for this?
