Why to Convert
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a widely used file format for documents. It is used to store documents in a format that is independent of the application software, hardware, and operating system. However, the PDF format is not suitable for editing or presenting documents. Therefore, it is necessary to convert PDF documents to other formats such as Microsoft PowerPoint (PPT) or Portable Presentation Format (PPS).

Android API to Export TEX to PPS
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load TEX file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.tex"); // save TEX as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx); // instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // save the presentation as Pps format presentation.save("output.pps", SaveFormat.Pps);
Open Password Protected TEX File in Android via Java
While loading TEX file format, your document might be password protected. Aspose.PDF for Android via Java allows you open encrypted documents as well. In order to open the encrypted file, you can initialize new instance of the Document class and pass filename and password as arguments.
// open TEX document Document doc = new Document("input.tex", "Your@Password"); // save TEX as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
Create Thumbnail Image of PPS File in Android Applications
After converting TEX to PPS, you can also create thumbnail images of your output document. By using rich in feature Aspose.Slides for Android via Java you can generate thumbnail images of the slides by creating and instance of the Presentation class. After that, you can obtain the reference of any desired slide by using its ID or index and get the thumbnail image of the referenced slide on a specified scale.
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPS file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("output.pps"); // access the first slide ISlide sld = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0); // create a full scale image BufferedImage image = sld.getThumbnail(1f, 1f); // save the image to disk in PNG format ImageIO.write(image, "PNG", new java.io.File("Thumbnail_out.png"));

What is TEX File Format?
The TeX file format is a typesetting system developed by Donald Knuth in the late 1970s. It is widely used in academia, particularly in the fields of mathematics, physics, and computer science, for creating professional-looking documents with complex mathematical formulas and symbols. TeX files are plain text files that contain a mixture of text and formatting commands.
TeX provides a powerful and flexible way to produce high-quality documents. It allows precise control over the layout and formatting of the document, including fonts, spacing, line breaks, page breaks, and mathematical equations. TeX uses a macro language that enables users to define their own commands and create custom styles and templates.
TeX files are typically processed by a TeX engine, such as pdfTeX or XeTeX, which reads the input file, interprets the formatting commands, and generates a typeset document in a variety of output formats, such as PDF, DVI, or PostScript. The typesetting process involves multiple passes, where the engine analyzes the document, resolves cross-references, and adjusts the layout to ensure optimal spacing and line breaks.
TeX is known for its exceptional typesetting quality and its ability to handle complex mathematical notation. It is widely used in academic publications, research papers, books, and technical documentation. The TeX format supports various extensions, such as LaTeX, which provides higher-level commands and document classes for easier document authoring.
What is PPS File Format?
The PPS file format is an extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations specifically designed for slideshow purposes. It stands for “PowerPoint Slide Show” and is closely related to the PPT (PowerPoint Presentation) format. PPS files contain a collection of slides, each with its own content, layout, and formatting.
Unlike PPT files, which open in the PowerPoint editor, PPS files are intended to be opened directly in slideshow mode. When a PPS file is opened, it launches the presentation in full-screen mode, immediately displaying the slides in the order they were created. This allows for a seamless and uninterrupted presentation experience without the need for manual navigation.
PPS files are commonly used for sharing presentations with others who only need to view the slides rather than edit them. By saving a presentation as a PPS file, you ensure that recipients can open and view the presentation as intended without accidentally modifying the content. This makes it a convenient format for distributing slideshows for meetings, conferences, or self-running presentations.
The PPS format retains all the visual elements, animations, transitions, and multimedia content included in the original PowerPoint presentation. It provides a convenient way to deliver polished and professional-looking slideshows that maintain their intended design and effects.
To open and view PPS files, recipients typically need a compatible software application such as Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint Viewer, or other presentation software capable of reading PPS files. These applications allow users to enjoy the full presentation experience without the need for authoring or editing capabilities.
