Suggestions about opening PPT/POT

Hi,


Worked with Aspose.Slides 14.2.0.0 and noticed few places that I did not liked:
  1. <span style=“font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;
    font-family:“Calibri”,“sans-serif”;mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-fareast-font-family:
    Calibri;mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;
    mso-bidi-font-family:“Times New Roman”;mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;
    mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA”>When
    you try to open regular or password protected (with valid password specified) DOCM,
    DOCX, DOTM, DOTX, XLSB, XLSM, XLSX, SLTM, XLTX by Aspose.Slides.Presentation the exception is thrown with the
    following message: “Not a Microsoft
    PowerPoint 2007 presentation”. It is not possible to get meaningful exception class
    name, because it is obfuscated.
    It is better to throw PptxUnsupportedFormatException
    here
    ?
  2. <span style=“font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;
    font-family:“Calibri”,“sans-serif”;mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-fareast-font-family:
    Calibri;mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;
    mso-bidi-font-family:“Times New Roman”;mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;
    mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA”>When
    you try to open password protected POT/PPT files and do NOT specify password,
    then PptxUnsupportedFormatException is
    thrown with message “Encrypted presentations are not supported”. Would it be
    better to throw InvalidPasswordException
    here?
  3. <span style=“font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;
    font-family:“Calibri”,“sans-serif”;mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-fareast-font-family:
    Calibri;mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;
    mso-bidi-font-family:“Times New Roman”;mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;
    mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA”>When
    you try to open password protected POT/PPT files and do specify valid password,
    PptxUnsupportedFormatException is
    thrown with message “Unknown file format”. So with this Aspose.Slides build we do
    not have
    ability to open password protected POT/PPT files.
The 3rd item is a bug.

Thank you,
Alex Shloma

SLIDESNET-35318
Does not work for password-protected PPS files. PptReadException is thrown if no password specified.

SLIDESNET-35319
PptReadException is still thrown opening
  • password-protected DOCX (for example) if valid password specified.
  • regular (not password protected) DOCX if password is not specified.
See project attached.

Thanks,
Alex Shloma
