Slide with EMF file causes 10x file growth on cloneslide


Attached is a sample with a "simple" slide with two emf files inserted as images.

when I clone this slide to a blank presentation, the size of the output is almost 10 times the size of the two presentations combined.

After some testing, it appears that the emf files are not being compressed because when I open the result in Powerpoint and save it, the size goes down to what one would expect (88% or so smaller than the original output).

Is this a known behavior? Is there any workarounds other than to manually convert emf files to gif(or some other format)?

Thank you for your time.



Compressing wmf and emf metafiles already implemented but not released yet.
It’s expected in the next hot fix.
