NotesSlideManager is crashing PowerPoint

I am trying to add notes to a slide of a presentation. I am using the code below. But this code is will make PowerPoint crash when opening the presentation. Do you have a sample or workaround for it? I am using Aspose.Slides 15.8.1.0.

var presentation = new Presentation();
var layout = presentation.LayoutSlides.FirstOrDefault(item => item.LayoutType == SlideLayoutType.TitleAndObject);
var slide = presentation.Slides.AddEmptySlide(layout);
var notesSlide = slide.NotesSlideManager.AddNotesSlide();
notesSlide.NotesTextFrame.Text = "Notes";

presentation.Save(@"C:\temp\1.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);

The problem is still there. In case you first add a slide without any note, and than a slide with a note. This situation will still crash PowerPoint. See example below. Hope you can fix this issue a.s.a.p? Note: Found out a workound: Adding empty notes to each slide will at least not crash PowerPoint.

var presentation = new Presentation();
var layout1 = presentation.LayoutSlides.FirstOrDefault(item => item.LayoutType == SlideLayoutType.TitleAndObject);
var slide1 = presentation.Slides.AddEmptySlide(layout1);

var layout2 = presentation.LayoutSlides.FirstOrDefault(item => item.LayoutType == SlideLayoutType.TitleAndObject);
var slide2 = presentation.Slides.AddEmptySlide(layout2);
var notesSlide = slide2.NotesSlideManager.AddNotesSlide();
notesSlide.NotesTextFrame.Text = "Notes";

presentation.Save(@"C:\temp\1.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);

Hi Robert,


I have observed your comments and worked with the code shared by you. I have been able to notice the problem while opening the generated file with PowerPoint 2013, however the file is being opened by PowerPoint 2010 without any problem. We have reopened this issue to further investigate and resolve it. We will notify you as soon as the issue will be fixed.

We are sorry for your inconvenience,

we have different observation on when it gets crashed on office 2013.
Its probably due to combination of Footer in Power Point and Source file created in Office 2010.

Just wanted to know is there any possible workaround for this issue with Aspose.Slides 15.10 dll?

Hi Sahil,
