Are you a C++ developer looking to add to integrate MD to PPTM 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 PPTM. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.
C++ API to Export MD to PPTM
- 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 PPTM 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 Pptm format prs->Save(u"output.pptm", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Pptm);
Change Password of MD Document via C++
In the process of rendering MD to PPTM, 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 PPTM File via C++
After converting MD to PPTM, 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 PPTM file
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTM file auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.pptm"); // 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.pptm", SaveFormat::Pptm);

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 PPTM File Format?
The PPTM file format is a file extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations that contain macros. It is an extension of the PPTX file format, which is the default file format for PowerPoint presentations. The “M” in PPTM stands for “macro-enabled” indicating that the file can contain embedded macros written in the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language.
PPTM files are created and edited using Microsoft PowerPoint or other compatible software that supports the PowerPoint file format. These files can include various multimedia elements such as text, images, videos, audio, and animations. Additionally, PPTM files can incorporate interactive features and custom functionalities through the use of macros.
Macros in PPTM files allow users to automate repetitive tasks, create interactive content, and add custom functionality to their presentations. Macros can be written using the VBA programming language and can perform a wide range of operations, including data manipulation, user input handling, and integration with other software applications.
When opening a PPTM file, PowerPoint may prompt the user to enable or disable macros for security reasons, as macros can potentially execute malicious code. It is important to exercise caution when opening PPTM files from unknown or untrusted sources.
