PowerPoint Export For Kendo UI Web and Kendo UI DataViz
Our users love how pretty Kendo UI charts are. We usually visualize data for them with Pie or Bar charts, often in combination with a Kendo UI Grid.
However they almost always want the ability to export what they see in the browser to PowerPoint. One workaround might be to save the Kendo elements to an image and stick that into a PowerPoint slide. However they don't want that. They want a real PowerPoint slides with real PowerPoint charts and grids live objects like they were initially created in PowerPoint. We have managed to implement something to do that with OpenXML, but it will be a HUGE time saver if Kendo does that out of the box.

Having the ability to export web page content including charts, grids, etc would be very nice. We produce PDF exports of web content, however, inevitably clients like to see these files in PPT. If the same content could be exported into PPT presentation format would be a time saver reducing copying images from PDF files into PPT when PPT is desired.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately our implementation with OpenXML is not tied with Kendo in any implicit way, just uses the underlying data and pre-generated proprietary PowerPoint file templates to inject the data and create the final output for our specific purposes, so it is not something we can share and would be useful at the same time.

Thank you for the proposition, Georgi.

Presently it looks there’s no direct way to import svg graphics to MS PowerPoint since this is not supported. My research come up with the following articles which elaborate on this topic:

Since you mentioned you completed your own PowerPoint export implementation with OpenXML, would you mind sharing your solution with the Kendo UI community here: http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/kendo-ui/charts? Thus you'll help other users searching for a similar solution.
