Text appears 'fuzzy' after slide cloning


On cloning PPT slides that have previously been saved from a 2007 PPTX presentation, the text appears 'fuzzy' after slides are cloned. When viewed with 2007 (400% zoom), it seems this may be because drop-shadows on the text were lightened considerably during cloning, leading to text appearing fuzzy in comparison to the original. However, this effect is apparently worse when the cloned presentation is viewed using PowerPoint 2007 for some reason - when viewed with 2003 they seem to appear sharper?

Please take a look at the following attached examples:-

1) Original file (Sharp shadows.PPTX)

2) After saving as a 2003 PPT file from 2007 (Sharp Shadows.PPT)

3) After cloning via Aspose Slides (Shadows after Aspose.PPT)

Please could you help us out again by fixing this quickly?

Many thanks.


You should always compare presentations in PowerPoint 2003 only.
PP2007 uses additional information stored in embedded xml (part of pptx format)
which is not available for PP2003 and for Aspose.Slides.

In PP2003 source and created presentations look identically.
