Wmf and emf files

Hello. I saw that in a new version of Aspose.Slides component the issue
of displaying metafiles in thumbnails was fixed. Could you please
suggest a way to render metafiles correctly while parsing the ppt
presentation or is this a propblem of Aspose.Slides? If you have the
solution, please provide it as soon as possible.

There was a problem with wmf metafiles only. PowerPoint stores wmf metafiles without placeable header and standard GDI can’t draw text correctly in this case. We generate new header and add it to a metafile.

Probably such solution is not good for you because we use some private properties to do it…
I will change Picture.Image property in the next hot fix. It will return updated wmf metafiles.

I hope the hotfix will be ready very soon.

It will be available today in a few hours.
