Hebrew text flipped

in a specific power point file with hebrew sentences the text is flipped (each word separately).
so instead of:
שלום עולם
we get
םולש םולע

i’ve tried playing the fonts, styles and etc without success of fixing it.
it would be nice to know if there a quick workaround instead of creating the text box from scratch.

this is the code:
Presentation pre = new Presentation(..file..);
Dimension2D slideDimenstions = pre.getSlideSize().getSize();
float scale = 1536.0f / Math.max((float) slideDimenstions.getWidth(), (float) slideDimenstions.getHeight());
ISlide sld = slides.get_Item(0);
BufferedImage image = sld.getThumbnail(scale, scale);
ImageIO.write(image, "png", new File("out.png"));

you may find sample files here:

i think it worth mentioning that saving as PDF works well:
Preformatted textpre.save(“out.pdf”, SaveFormat.Pdf);`

  • where can i see the status of this ticket? (SLIDESJAVA-37388)
  • is there any workaround i can set in office 2016 to fix the text? i know that using the “format painter” works but it’s not that convenient as it ruin the original formatting.
