C# API to Convert PS to OTT
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // save PS as a DOC document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); // load Doc with an instance of Document var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ott outputDocument.Save("output.ott", SaveFormat.Ott);
Decrypt PS File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting PS to OTT, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the PS using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.ps", "password"); // decrypt PS document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly OTT- File via .NET
In order to protect your OTT from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ott document.Save("output.ott", SaveFormat.Ott);

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 OTT File Format?
OTT (OpenDocument Template) is a file format used for creating templates in the OpenDocument format. OpenDocument is an open standard for office documents, including text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more. OTT files specifically serve as templates for creating new documents with predefined styles, formatting, and content.
OTT files are based on the XML-based OpenDocument format, which ensures interoperability and compatibility across different office suites and applications that support the OpenDocument standard, such as LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice, and Calligra Suite.
When you open an OTT file, it serves as a starting point for creating a new document. It contains placeholders, predefined styles, and other elements that help structure the content and maintain consistency throughout the document. Users can modify the template as needed, such as replacing placeholders with actual content, adjusting styles, and adding or removing sections.
The advantage of using OTT files is that they provide a convenient and efficient way to create documents with consistent formatting and layout. By starting with a template, users can save time and effort in setting up the document structure and formatting from scratch.
OTT files can be easily shared and distributed, allowing others to use the same template to create documents with a unified look and feel. They also support customization options, allowing users to personalize the template according to their specific needs.
