I am generating a PowerPoint presentation that has some slides which have tables on them. Some of the cells have wrapped text in them, so the height of the row is variable. Is there an easy way to determine if the next row will fit on the slide, so that I break the table into 2 slides.

Hi Robert, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
Behavior of Microsoft PowerPoint 
Microsoft PowerPoint has a fixed layout that is manually adding rows to a table of a slide, will not continue to add the rows in a new slide when it exceeds the slide’s actual height whereas Microsoft Word has a flow layout which continues to add the rows in a new page when it exceeds the page height. 
Is there an easy way to determine if the next row will fit on the slide? 
A cell in a row can contain any slide elements like, shape, picture, text with styles or an image. So to calculate the height of the row dynamically depends on the cell content also which is not feasible. There is no workaround to achieve this scenario programmatically. 
Please let us know if you have any question.
