Hi Setu,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

We are sorry for the delayed response. Please use the code snippet below, that will help you in loading presentation templates and applying them on presentation slides. For your reference, I have also attached the sample templates, source and output PPT files.



String dirPath = "D:\\ppt\\ ";

Presentation srcTemplate = new Presentation(new FileInputStream(dirPath+"Template2.pot"));

Presentation srcPres = new Presentation(new FileInputStream(dirPath+"source.ppt"));

TreeMap temp = new TreeMap();

//Clone slide from template to import master and delete extraneous slide

Slide sld=srcTemplate.cloneSlide(srcTemplate.getSlideByPosition(1), srcPres.getSlides().getLastSlidePosition() + 1, srcPres, temp);


//Save the master id of the newly cloned slide

//Slide sld=srcTemplate.getSlideByPosition(1);

long mstrId = sld.getMasterId();

//Delete the extraneous slide


//Get the master slide

Slide mstrSld = srcPres.getSlideById(mstrId);

//Change the master of all the normal slides in source presentation

for (int i = 1; i <= srcPres.getSlides().getLastSlidePosition(); i++)


Slide normSld = srcPres.getSlideByPosition(i);

normSld.changeMaster(mstrSld, true);


//Write presentation on disk

srcPres.write(new FileOutputStream(dirPath+"OutputpresMud.ppt"));


catch(Exception ex)




Thanks and Regards,
