How to set vertical alignment of TextBox using Java

I would like to have vertically aligned text inside a textBox.

Java Code:

import com.aspose.words.*;

import java.io.File;

public class AsposeBugExample {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            com.aspose.words.Document doc = new Document();
            doc.removeAllChildren();
            Section section = new Section(doc);
            doc.appendChild(section);
            DocumentBuilder documentBuilder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

            final Shape node = documentBuilder.insertShape(ShapeType.TEXT_BOX, 350, 200);
            node.setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment.LEFT);
            node.setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment.CENTER);
            node.setTop(150);
            node.setLeft(450);
            node.getTextBox().setVerticalAnchor(TextBoxAnchor.MIDDLE);
            final Paragraph paragraph = node.getLastParagraph();
            final Run row = new Run(documentBuilder.getDocument(),"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA");
            paragraph.appendChild(row);

            doc.save(System.getProperty("user.dir") + File.separator + "textbox_vertical_middle.docx");
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}

Result and expected files:
vertical_aligment.zip (28.4 KB)

Reproduce expected file:

  1. Blank document --> Insert --> Shapes --> Text Box --> Add text “aaaaaaaa” into text box
  2. Shape Format --> Align Text --> Middle

Current state:
Text in text box is not aligned vertically.

Using versions:
Java : 11
aspose-words : 20.8

Please use the following OoxmlSaveOptions to get the desired output. Hope this helps you.

OoxmlSaveOptions options = new OoxmlSaveOptions();
options.setCompliance(OoxmlCompliance.ISO_29500_2008_STRICT);
doc.save(MyDir + "textbox_vertical_middle.docx", options);

It works correctly :slight_smile:

Update:
Unfortunately, it does not work properly with photos. I will try to prepare examples.
diffrent_results.zip (38.1 KB)

In file without_OoxmlSaveOptions.docx I have 2 images
In file with_OoxmlSaveOptions.docx they are minimalised. (it is an unwanted result)

Java Code presents the difference :

Update:
problem solved by setting image font:
imageShape.getFont().setSize(1);
