Render presentation in PDF & XPS formats - C++

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 document but also from one file 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
Library allows formatting shapes and text on slides in a file while using API. 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. One can also manipulate shape element attributes such as size, line, position, image, text and fill with great ease.
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.
