Why the API diff between Slides & Words/Cells wrt to CustomProperties?


I was wondering why Slides has a different API than Words/Cells for setting custom properties. For instance in both Words & Cells the call is:

// Remove


[Document|WorkBook.Worksheets].CustomDocumentProperties[propertyName] // returns a DocumentProperty

However in Slides for both Presentation and PresentationEx you have to use the DocumentProperties class directly and it is basically just setting/getting a type Object. Funny enough, it does have a Remove method.

What's the reasoning behind this? I'd expect that the API for CRUD on custom properties would be the same across Office documents at least. It seems a simple thing to implement on Aspose's end and would save me the bother of creating my own wrappers.


Dear Paul,

We really appreciate your feedback and thank you for highlighting the issue. Our development team is looking in to the issue and hopefully in the next major release of Aspose.Slides for .NET, the uniform feature support for common features will be provided.

Thanks and Regards,

Any updates on this? It does not look like this has been changed in the current release, any plans to do so?
