Aspose.Total for Java is a comprehensive suite of components that enables developers to easily convert PostScript (PS) to PowerPoint Open XML Macro-Enabled Presentation (POTM) within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components provides developers with the tools they need to quickly and efficiently convert PS to POTM.
The process of converting PS to POTM begins with Aspose.PDF for Java, which is a powerful PDF Processing API that enables developers to export PS to PPTX. This API provides developers with a wide range of features, such as the ability to convert PS to PDF, extract text from PDF documents, and convert PDF documents to other popular file formats.
Once the PS has been converted to PPTX, developers can then use Aspose.Slides for Java, a powerful PowerPoint Processing API, to convert the PPTX to POTM. This API provides developers with a wide range of features, such as the ability to create, modify, and convert presentations, as well as the ability to add and manipulate text, shapes, and images.
In addition to the features mentioned above, Aspose.Total for Java also provides developers with a wide range of other components, such as Aspose.Words for Java, which enables developers to create, modify, and convert documents, and Aspose.Cells for Java, which enables developers to create, modify, and convert spreadsheets.
Overall, Aspose.Total for Java is a comprehensive suite of components that enables developers to easily convert PS to POTM within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components provides developers with the tools they need to quickly and efficiently convert PS to POTM, as well as a wide range of other features and components.
Java API to Convert PS to POTM
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load PS file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // save PS 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 Potm format presentation.save("output.potm", SaveFormat.Potm);
Open Encrypted PS File via Java
While loading PS file format, your document might be password protected. Aspose.PDF for 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 PS document Document doc = new Document("input.ps", "Your@Password"); // save PS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
Save POTM File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting PS to POTM, you can also add predefined view type for your presentation. Aspose.Slides for Java provides a facility to set the view type for the generated presentation when it is opened in PowerPoint through the ViewProperties class. The setLastView property is used to set the view type by using the ViewType enumerator.
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // set view type presentation.getViewProperties().setLastView((byte) ViewType.SlideMasterView); // save the presentation as Potm format presentation.save("output.potm", SaveFormat.Potm);

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is POTM File Format?
POTM is a file format used in Microsoft PowerPoint to store presentation templates that also include macros. Similar to the POTX format, POTM files are part of the Office Open XML (OOXML) format introduced in PowerPoint 2007.
The “M” in POTM stands for macros, indicating that these templates can contain VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) code that automates tasks and enhances the functionality of the presentation. This allows users to create dynamic and interactive templates that go beyond static design elements.
POTM files offer the same benefits as POTX files in terms of providing pre-designed slide layouts, formatting, and styles. However, the inclusion of macros adds an extra layer of interactivity and automation to the templates. Macros can perform tasks such as data manipulation, calculations, slide transitions, and user interactions, making presentations more engaging and efficient.
To use a POTM file, users can open it in PowerPoint or select it as a template when creating a new presentation. The macros embedded in the POTM template can be executed and interacted with during the presentation, providing enhanced functionality beyond what is possible with a standard template.
It’s important to note that due to security concerns, some systems and organizations may have restrictions on running macros in PowerPoint presentations. In such cases, users may need to adjust their security settings or obtain necessary permissions to enable the execution of macros in POTM files.
POTM files are compatible with different versions of PowerPoint on various platforms, allowing users to create and share templates with macros across different devices and environments. They provide a powerful tool for creating interactive and automated presentations, offering greater flexibility and customization options for users.
