Hi,

is there a recommended workaround? We have found that there are a number of objects within an existing powerpoint presentation, which, when present, seem to trigger this error. Is there a way of “cleansing” the document, so that we can create a document which will not trigger the error?

thanks,

Hi Corey,


Thanks for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

I would first like to suggest you using latest available version of Aspose.Slides for .NET 5.5.0 as the version that you are using is fairly old. The stack trace that you have shared shows that there is some issue while cloning slides. If the issue still persists by using mentioned latest product version then please share the source presentation and project code with us so that I may investigate the issue further.

Thanks and Regards,
