Fonts problems in 16.10.0

Font handling is broken again in 16.10.0. My server only has a small number of fonts installed. Some of the presentations we generate use fonts that are not installed on the server. This has worked fine for 8 years. I updated the library to 16.10.0 and now I see errors like this:

java.lang.Exception: class com.aspose.slides.ms.pbdb106a0.i: Font 'Arial' does not support style 'Regular'
com.aspose.slides.ms.pbdb106a0.p6a2feef8.p.do(Unknown Source)
com.aspose.slides.ms.pbdb106a0.p6a2feef8.p.(Unknown Source)
com.aspose.slides.ms.pbdb106a0.p6a2feef8.p.(Unknown Source)
com.aspose.slides.ms.pbdb106a0.p6a2feef8.p.(Unknown Source)
com.aspose.slides.FontsLoader.do(Unknown Source)

Can you explain what's going on please?

Note: there is NO source presentation. The app generates presentations from scratch. To reproduce use a font name not installed in your environment.

Here is some code you can use. Substitute Arial with a font you know is not installed in your environment.


<pre style=“background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: “Courier New”; font-size: 9pt;”>final IPresentation p = PresentationFactory
.getInstance()
.createPresentation();
final ISlide slide = p.getSlides().get_Item(0);
final IAutoShape shape = slide.getShapes().addAutoShape(
ShapeType.Rectangle, 0, 0, 100, 100);
shape.getTextFrame().setText(“Test”);
final IPortionFormat portionFormat =
shape.getTextFrame().getParagraphs()
.get_Item(0).getParagraphFormat()
.getDefaultPortionFormat();
portionFormat.setLatinFont(new FontData(“Arial”));
p.save("/tmp/out.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
