Incorrect portion OuterShadow color


As you can see in the attached screenshot, OuterShadow color of the portion “Warehouse (BW)” is white. But when I get the value through the code, it is RGB (128, 128, 128).

Here’s the code I used:

String presentationPath = “PortionFontFormatTest.ppt”;

InputStream stream = new FileInputStream(presentationPath);

Presentation presentation = new Presentation(stream);


ISlide slide = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0);

IAutoShape shape = (AutoShape) slide.getShapes().get_Item(1);

ITextFrame textFrame = shape.getTextFrame();

IParagraph paragraph = textFrame.getParagraphs().get_Item(0);
IPortion portion = paragraph.getPortions().get_Item(2);
IOuterShadow outerShadow = portion.getPortionFormat().getEffectFormat().getOuterShadowEffect();

Can you check this?
