German special cahracters not copied correctly in Power



I am currently in the process of reviewing your PowerPointJava-library for use in one of our applications, which looks promising except that I encountered a bug:

When running your CloneSlide-example with our slides which contain special characters like ‘?’ ‘?’ ‘ü’ these characters dont get copied correctly in the resulting ppt-file.

This happened with all versions on your page even the one released yesterday ( Is that a known bug and likely to be fixed in the near future?

Best regards

Dear Michael,

I will check everything and fix the problem asap.
Thank you.


Dear Michael,

Please check new 1.1.1 hot fix.
We added support for non-unicode German umlauts and correct converting it to unicode.
