Embedding Pptx document with Dropbox Embedder loads a single page of Pptx document.
I'm not able to paginate on document it is also breaking the format and embedding it like a Pdf document.

I'm using the following code for embedding 

// Code

dropboxEmbed = window.Dropbox.embed(
        {
          link: dropboxLink,
          file: {
            zoom: 'fit',
          },
        },
        dropboxContainer,
 );

Thanks for following up. I don't have a documented guarantee to share on exactly what navigation/pagination controls would be expected for any given file type, but this issue is open with the team and I'll follow up here once I have any news to share.

Thanks for the report! I can reproduce the issue of apparently not being able to navigate to other pages in a multi-page .pptx document. We'll look into it and I'll follow up here with any updates on that.

 

I'm not sure I understand what you mean when you say "it is also breaking the format and embedding it like a Pdf document" though. Can you clarify? Thanks in advance!

Hey, Thanks for replying
The other issue which I mentioned related to embedding format is basically when I'm embedding a Pptx document, it is showing the first slide in a scrolled manner (which is similar to embedding Pdf's, you get all the pages in scrollable view)

Mainly my concern was it was not showing pagination options for me, for this embedding format query I had a doubt that it is changing the format (Please correct me if I'm wrong).

That is fixed for me now by passing {file: { zoom: 'fit' }} in Dropbox.embed();
