Thank you for contacting support.

Could you please point out which Aspose.Slides library you used?


OS: Ubuntu
Library: Aspose slides - Python via .Net

PDF Export:

pdfOptions = slides.export.PdfOptions()

# Sets the Jpeg quality
pdfOptions.jpeg_quality = 100

# Sets the behavior for metafiles
pdfOptions.save_metafiles_as_png = True
pdfOptions.sufficient_resolution = 100

# Sets the text compression level
pdfOptions.text_compression = slides.export.PdfTextCompression.NONE

# Defines the PDF standard
pdfOptions.compliance = slides.export.PdfCompliance.PDF15

Thumbnail export:

with open(file_name, 'wb') as file:
    # setting svg export params
    svgOptions = slides.export.SVGOptions()
    svgOptions.vectorize_text = True
    svgOptions.jpeg_quality = 100
    svgOptions.pictures_compression = 3
    slide.write_as_svg(file, svgOptions)

I reproduced the problem with the white arrow appearing in the upper left corner when converting the presentation to PDF.
