Bold Style Did Not Get Applied on Text


In the attached presentation, I created new Portion with some text and applied some formatting. I then cleared the old portions from a paragraph and added new portion to it. As a result of that, bold style did not get applied on text. Please see screenshot for your reference.

Here’s the code I use:

String presentationPath = “0804Presentation_Francois_Atger.ppt”;

InputStream inputStream = new FileInputStream(presentationPath);

Presentation presentation = new Presentation(inputStream);


ISlide slide = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0);

IAutoShape shape = (IAutoShape) slide.getShapes().get_Item(1);

IParagraph paragraph = shape.getTextFrame().getParagraphs().get_Item(0);

IPortion portion = paragraph.getPortions().get_Item(0);

IPortionFormatEffectiveData effectiveData = portion

float fontHeight = effectiveData.getFontHeight();
boolean bold = effectiveData.getFontBold();
Color color = effectiveData.getFillFormat().getSolidFillColor();
int red = color.getRed();
int green = color.getGreen();
int blue = color.getBlue();
int alpha = color.getAlpha();

String fontName = effectiveData.getLatinFont().getFontName();

IPortion newPortion = new Portion(“T_François Atger, Territorial Director”);

IPortionFormat newPortionFormat = newPortion.getPortionFormat();

newPortionFormat.setLatinFont(new FontData(fontName));
newPortionFormat.setFontBold(bold ? NullableBool.True
: NullableBool.False);

System.out.println("Bold: " + newPortionFormat.getFontBold());
.setColor(new Color(red, green, blue, alpha));


presentation.save(“0804Presentation_Francois_Atger-aspose.ppt”, SaveFormat.Ppt);

Can you check this?
