Can't access slide text (1143)


I’m unable to get all text from shapes on slides 6, 7 and 8 in the attached file. And also, if you just load and save the presentation, shapes on slides 6, 7 and 8 become pictures.

Here’s the code:

Presentation presentation = new Presentation("test.pptx");

ISlideCollection slides = presentation.getSlides();

for (int i = 5; i < slides.size(); i++) {

    IShapeCollection shapes = slides.get_Item(i).getShapes();

    System.out.println("Slide number: " + i);
    for (int j = 0; j < shapes.size(); j++) {

	IAutoShape shape = (IAutoShape) shapes.get_Item(j);

	System.out.println("Shape ord. number: " + j);
	System.out.println("Shape text: " + shape.getTextFrame().getText());


I’m using Aspose.Slides for Java 18.2.

Can you check this?
