PowerPoint Export

I am trying to export my report to power point via the Export to Powerpoint feature. The export itself is fine but once I download the powerpoint I am getting some blank boxes that covers the first page of the report where the data and charts are populated. Is there a workaround this issue because I tried republishing the report to the server and then downloading it and also saved the report published it to the service and then downloaded it but its all the same case in the end. Please let me know if there ia a solution for my issue. attached are couple of images stating the issue.

 

Thanks

Re: PowerPoint Export

The issue has been resolved as I was using the custom page size instead of the default 16:9 size. So when I export it to powerpoint, the export would take screenshots of different portions of the page instead of screenshotting the entire page since its not the default page size. I also found out that Page 1 of the report should always be of the default size even when other pages in the report are of custom size.

@sridharpolina I've found better success with a 3rd party tool called Power Tiles -> Give that a shot.

Re: PowerPoint Export

@Seth_C_Bauer Thank you for that suggestion. I will try the power tiles tool to see if the issue is fixed. I do have one problem though. The original issue was highlighted beacuse my end users want to export the report to powerpoint but were having these issues. They just want to click one option and download the entire report without any errors without installing another tool to fix the issue. Is there a way to do that? I did put in a issue ticket with microsoft to see if they have seen this bug. Please let me know if this issue can be resolved with any thrid party tools.

 

Thanks
