Render presentation in PDF & XPS formats - C++

// load presentation to be converted
SharedPtr<Presentation> presentation = MakeObject<Presentation>(dir + L"template.pptx");
// save in PDF & XPS formats
presentation->Save(dir + L"output.pdf", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Pdf);
presentation->Save(dir + L"output.xps", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Xps);

Copy or Clone Presentation Slides

There are built-in methods provided by Aspose.Slides for C++ to clone or copy existing slides not only within a presentation but also from one presentation to the other. Since a slide inherits its layout from the master slide, the built-in cloning methods automatically copy the master during the cloning process.

Microsoft PowerPoint Content Formatting

It is possible to format text and shapes on slides in a presentation while using Aspose.Slides for C++. Text is managed through text frames associated with shapes, hence text is formatted using paragraphs and portions associated with the text frames. You can manage the font type, color, size, shades as well as the paragraph alignment, bulleting & orientation. You can also manipulate attributes of the shape element like position, size, line, image, text and fill with great ease.

Serialize Shapes

Although Aspose.Slides for C++ supports a large number of shapes, however, if a shape is not supported by the API, there is a serialization method provided through which you can serialize that shape from an existing slide for further usage as per application requirement.
