Exports are resized when saving as PDF

Issue: When saving a PowerPoint presentation as PDF, all charts and tables that are exported with UpSlide change size.

For example, let's assume, I exported the following table in PowerPoint.


It could look like this after saving as pdf.

Impacted versions

UpSlide: all versions

Windows: starts with Windows 10

Office: Only Office 2010 and Office 2013

Reproduction steps

To reproduce this, you first need to change Display settings. For example by

  • Connecting to an external monitor
  • Or Changing the Primary Screen scaling

Any export from Excel to PowerPoint made until you next log out will present this issue.

Workaround 1 (needs UpSlide V6.1 at least): Change UpSlide exports settings :

  • Go to UpSlide -> Settings
  • Go to General Tab and change the Appearance to "As shown when printed"
    • Note: You may need to uncheck "Use Team settings" checkbox to change this setting.
  • Restart Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

Workaround 2: Use a PDF Printer instead of using Office Native Feature.

Workaround 3: Simply log out and log back into your windows session, then update all links before coverting to pdf.
