Issues with converting ODP files to PDF



I want to report several issues we run into while using Aspose.Slides APIs to convert OpenDocument Presentations (Odp) to Pdf format.

The version of Aspose.Slides used for conversion is

1. In some cases Aspose.Slides simply cannot recognize ODP files. For example attempt to open file “friday_1484.odp” (attached) by calling

Aspose.Slides.Presentation presentation = new Aspose.Slides.Presentation(“friday_1484.odp”)
throws “Aspose.Slides.PptUnsupportedFormatException” with
description = "Not a Open Office presentation."

2. In other cases the format can be recognized but some files elements are missing or not converted correctly. Such for file “test .odp” the bullet points are not converted properly.

Please see attached original file and PDF output.

We are actively using Aspose APIs for PDF conversions in our product and the problems with conversion quality and format’s recognitions are serious issues for us.

Best Regards,
