Can't create Note on slides using Slides 14.4

I download latest 14.4.0 of Slides. I can not add notes to slide follow previous working example. Please give me a workaround to add notes to slides in this version of Slides.


Thanks for inquiring Aspose.Slides.

I have observed the requirement shared by you and suggest you to please try using the following sample code on your end to serve the purpose. Please share, if I may help you further in this regard.

public static void addNotes()
Presentation pres = new Presentation();
ISlide slide = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0);

INotesSlide note= slide.addNotesSlide();

IAutoShape ashp = (IAutoShape)note.getShapes().get_Item(1);
ashp.getTextFrame().setText(“Notes text”);

pres.save(“D:\Aspose Data\NotesSlide.pptx”, SaveFormat.Pptx);


Many Thanks,

I have run the code

Below is my code
Presentation presentation = new Presentation();
ISlide slide = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0);

INotesSlide note= slide.addNotesSlide();

IAutoShape ashp = (IAutoShape)note.getShapes().get_Item(1);
ashp.getTextFrame().setText(“Notes text”);

try {
FileOutputStream fop = new FileOutputStream(file);
presentation.save(fop, SaveFormat.Ppt);

} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {


The note section is still empty

I have attached the ppt file
Please note: I am running Aspose Slide 14.4.0

Hi Benjamin,

I have observed the sample code and presentation shared by you. You are saving the presentation as PPT on your end. I have been able to observe that if you save the presentation as PPT the notes are not appearing. I have created an issue with ID SLIDESJAVA-34434 in our issue tracking system to further investigate and resolve the issue. In the meanwhile, I suggest you to please try saving the presentation as PPTX to get things going on your end.

We are sorry for your inconvenience,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as SLIDESJAVA-34434) have been fixed in this update.
