Mailmerge/Mergefields in Aspose.slides


Do we have merge fields kind of feature in Aspose.Slides? I searched in the docs and in this forum as well but could not find anything about merge fields in Slides. If yes, then please help me with the link to it and if not how can I achieve that? I am thinking of putting predefined texts and replacing them with the actual value.


Thanks for inquiring Aspose.Slides.

I have observed the requirements shared by you and unfortunately have not been able to completely understand that. Can you please elaborate the requirements so that I may help you further in this regard.

Many Thanks,


I’m also searching for the same is there any functionality for MailMerge in Aspose.Sildes as we have for Aspose.word


I have observed the information shared by you. An issue with ID SLIDESNET-39307 has been created in our issue tracking system as new feature request to provide requested support. This thread has been linked with the issue so that you may be automatically notified once the support will be available.

Is this enhancement completed? If not how soon we can expect .


I regret to inform that this issue is postponed, because of many issues with higher statuses and priorities. The ETA is not earlier then Q4’2018.

Hi Thanks for your quick response. Is there any way to achieve this ? like aspose.word which replaces the merge field with actual value . Is there any other workaround or a way to achieve in PPT.


I regret to share that at present there is no workaround that I may offer you at this point of time to serve the purpose on your end.

Is it best practice to use this above method? so i will find the control based on the alternative text and i will do required merge or setting the text of that control .


Yes this is one approach to give a user defined name to slide shape that can be even set using PowerPoint as well. Then you can find the desired shape and do the needful later on.

Is the merge field feature still on schedule for Q4 2018 for Aspose.Slides?


I have verified from our issue tracking system and regret to share that the requested support involve considerable resources and have been postponed owing to other priority issues. We request for your patience and will share the good news with you as soon as the support will be available.

Is this features implemented?
