Aspose.Slides GetThumbnail font rendering issue

My company is evaluating the product and we have found that when calling Slide.GetThumbnail, the font rendered in the image doesn’t match the font used in powerpoint.

The font we are using is an OpenType Layout, Postcript Outlines, and doing some research it seems that GDI+ cannot handle that kind of fonts, and it seems your Aspose product uses GDI+ to render in GetThumbnails. Is that the case?

Can you confirm then that Aspose.Slides cannot handle the rendering of some kind of fonts because it uses GDI+? If that’s the case, since the documentation is poor, can you provide the information of what are the supported font types by Aspose.Slides?

Kind regards,


Dear Nicolas,

Thanks for considering Aspose.Slides.

Yes you are right that Aspose.Slides uses standard .NET Framework runtime, which uses GDI+ for text rendering. So, any fonts which are not supported by .NET Framework are also automatically not supported by Aspose.Slides. Hope it answers your query.

Thanks and Regards,
