I've automated the CLI version of iSpring. A user uploads a PPT or PPTX in a CMS, it gets converted, and then appears in a web site. It all works great. However, I have one PPTX file that for some reason is appearing too large in the web site.

Basically, the SWF is loaded and then scaled to fit a window based on its width. Check out the two images below. The first shows a SWF converted from PPTX that is displaying correctly. The second is the problem SWF (notice how it goes outside the frame). Is there anyway to constrain size when converting in iSpring, or is this something I should be fixing in Flash?

Correct:

Too big:

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Thank you for posting at our blog.

It could be caused by embedding options of your CMS. Please make sure that the width and height parameters are set correctly in HTML code.

As an option you could just try to set width and height among the conversion parameters:
iSpringSDK.exe s -w 720 -h 540 "c:\test.ppt" "c:\test.swf"

Awesome. What about maintaining aspect ratio? Is it possible to just set width and then lock the aspect ratio somehow? The source PPTs do not conform to any size standards.

Thanks much,
Steve

This issue was in Flash. But out of curiosity, is it possible to constrain the size *AND* aspect ratio during conversion?

Aspect ratio couldn't be changed during conversion, the only way to do it is changing of the ratio in PowerPoint.

PowerPoint has the default resolution 720 x 540. However, size of output presentation is set in inches only in PowerPoint page setup. So the default size is 10 x 7.5 inches. The resolution of the physical dimensions is 72 ppi (pixels per inch). You can calculate the necessary dimension of each size in inches to fit required resolution based on this ppi value.
