Hyperlink wrong color on thumbnail

Hi Aspose. I have an issue with a specific hyperlink rendering. It’s color is gray on thumbnails but Powerpoint renders it correctly - with a blue color. Links to the solution and the result you can find here and here respectively. I’m using aspose.slides 19.9 on windows 10


I have observed your comments. A ticket with ID SLIDESNET-41396 has been created in our issue tracking system to investigate this issue in detail. This thread has been associated with the ticket so that we may share the notification with you once investigation will be completed.

Hi there. In which build the solution will be included?


I like to inform that it is not a bug. The source of hyperlink color is portion format. This feature is available in PowerPoint 2019 and supported since Aspose.Slides for .Net 19.3.
You can check this:

  • by opening presentation in PowerPoint 2019 or PowerPoint for Office 365.
  • with the following code:
Presentation pres = new Presentation(path + "linksLorem.pptx");
IAutoShape shape = (IAutoShape)pres.Slides[0].Shapes[0];
IPortion linkedPortion = shape.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[4];
Console.WriteLine("Hyperlink text: " + linkedPortion.Text);
Console.WriteLine("Hyperlink color source: " + linkedPortion.PortionFormat.HyperlinkClick.ColorSource);
