Highlight feature for PPT files not working


I am trying to highlight few words in a “ppt” file. I noticed that no words were highlighted when I saved the output in “ppt” format. But I see that highlight is successful when I save the output file in “pptx” format.

I am using the version 19.9 library

My question is

  • Is highlighting supported for ppt file when the output should be saved in ppt format.
  • Is it a requirement that to use highlighting feature on ppt, the output need to be saved in pptx format ?

I am attaching the files and (81.2 KB)



I have observed your requirements and request you to please try using latest Aspose.Slides for Java 20.3 on your end. In case there is still an issue, please feel free to share with us.

I used the 20.3 version of slides and I still observe the same behavior.

If I save the output in pptx format the words are highlighted fine.

If I save the output in ppt format none of the words are highlighted.
