Are you a C++ developer looking to add to integrate MD to PPSX conversion feature inside your C++ applications? You can do it in two simple steps. You can export MD to PPTX by using Aspose.PDF for C++ . Secondly, by using Aspose.Slides for C++ , you can convert PPTX to PPSX. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.
C++ API to Export MD to PPSX
- Open MD file using Document class reference
- Convert MD to PPTX by using Save method function
- Load PPTX document by using Presentation class reference
- Save the document to PPSX format using
member function and set
Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load MD file with an instance of Document class auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"template.md"); // save MD as PPTX format doc->Save(u"PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat::Pptx); // instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file SharedPtr<Presentation> prs = MakeObject<Presentation>(u"PptxOutput.pptx"); // save the presentation as Ppsx format prs->Save(u"output.ppsx", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Ppsx);
Change Password of MD Document via C++
In the process of rendering MD to PPSX, you can open a password protected MD and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MD file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.
// load an existing MD Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.md", L"owner"); // change password of MD Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Add Images From Web in PPSX File via C++
After converting MD to PPSX, you can also add images from web to your output document. Aspose.Slides for C++ supports operations with images in these popular formats: JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, and others. You can add one or several images on your computer onto a slide in a presentation. This sample code in C++ shows you how to add an image to a PPSX file
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPSX file auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.ppsx"); // get slide auto slide = pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(0); // initialize Web Client auto webClient = System::MakeObject<WebClient>(); // get image data auto imageData = webClient->DownloadData(System::MakeObject<Uri>(u"[REPLACE WITH URL]")); // add image auto image = pres->get_Images()->AddImage(imageData); // add picture frame slide->get_Shapes()->AddPictureFrame(ShapeType::Rectangle, 10.0f, 10.0f, 100.0f, 100.0f, image); // save updated file pres->Save(u"updated.ppsx", SaveFormat::Ppsx);

What is MD File Format?
MD, or Markdown, is a lightweight markup language commonly used for formatting plain text documents. It was created by John Gruber in 2004 with the goal of allowing writers to focus on content without the distractions of complex formatting. Markdown uses simple and intuitive syntax that can be easily converted into HTML or other document formats.
In Markdown, you can apply formatting to text by using a combination of special characters and plain text. For example, you can use asterisks or underscores to create italic or bold text, hashtags to create headings, and hyphens or asterisks to create lists. Markdown also supports adding links, images, code snippets, and tables.
One of the advantages of Markdown is its readability in its raw form, as it closely resembles plain text. It can be written in any text editor and easily converted into HTML or other formats using various tools and converters. Markdown files have the .md or .markdown file extension.
Markdown is widely used for writing documentation, creating blog posts, and even in version control systems like Git. Its simplicity and versatility have made it a popular choice among writers, developers, and content creators for creating structured and well-formatted documents with minimal effort.
What is PPSX File Format?
The PPXS file format is a file extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations in a compressed format. It is an extension of the PPTX file format, which is the default file format for PowerPoint presentations. The “S” in PPXS stands for “compressed”, indicating that the file has undergone compression to reduce its size.
The purpose of the PPXS format is to create smaller file sizes for PowerPoint presentations, making them easier to share, transfer, and store. The compression algorithm used in PPXS files helps to reduce the overall file size while maintaining the content and formatting of the presentation.
PPXS files can be created and edited using Microsoft PowerPoint or other software that supports the PowerPoint file format. They contain various multimedia elements such as text, images, videos, audio, and animations, just like regular PowerPoint presentations.
When opening a PPXS file, PowerPoint decompresses the file to restore it to its original PPTX format, allowing users to view and edit the presentation as they would with any other PowerPoint file.
The use of the PPXS format can be beneficial when working with large presentations or when there is a need to optimize file sizes for sharing or storage purposes. However, it’s worth noting that decompressing the PPXS file to its original PPTX format may require additional processing time.
