Issue in Textbox with Shrink Text on overflow using Aspose.Slides for Java

I have used textboxes in a lot of places somewith Normal Autofit and other with Shape, everything works fine except one place which is inconsitent.
I have a header with font size 44px and Shrink-on-overflow. While it works most times, sometimes the text just goes to the next line. Do note that the same text doesn’t always go to next line.
It appears when there is just one words that overflows it appears as an issue, when there are many words it works just fine

My code:
textPortion.setText(“SOME TEXT”);


I have observed the issue shared by your and have not been able to completely understand the issue. I suggest you to please share the working sample project along with source and generated presentation. Please also share the desired output presentation as well for reference. I will investigate the issue further on my end to help you out.

Here is the code:
Presentation presentation = new Presentation();
ISlide someSlide = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0);
IAutoShape rect = someSlide.getShapes().addAutoShape(ShapeType.Rectangle, 50, 50, 648, 44);
ITextFrame textFrame = rect.addTextFrame("");
IParagraphCollection para = textFrame.getParagraphs();
IPortion textPortion = new Portion();
textPortion.getPortionFormat().setLatinFont(new FontData(“Georgia”));
textPortion.setText("Tell us why you like or dislike your computer… ");

presentation.save("/YourPath/OverlapText.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);

Here are two scenarios:

  1. Text to use: “Tell us why you like or dislike your computer…”
    What happens: Text overflows instead of shrinking-to-autofit.

    However, if i try to do some activity on the slide, the text resets. I have a video to show but i am not able to upload.
    After you create the above slide, try to insert a textbox anywhere in the slide and you will see that the text “Tell us why you like or dislike your computer…” will reset into a single line and will not overflow.

  2. Second scenario:
    Text to use: “Magnet Index 6 - Professional Development”
    What happens: Opposite to point 1. The text is neatly shrunk-on-autofit, if you try to insert a textbox anywhere in the slide, the text “Magnet Index 6 - Professional Development” will overflow. I again have another video to share but cannot upload

Thank you. Doesn’t purchase of Aspose package entitle it to Enterprise support??


I like to share that buying API does make you entitle for free support but in order to avail Priority or Enterprise support, you need to purchase subscription. Please visit this link for your convenience.

Has there been any update on this? Since it’s been more than 50 days and this product is already released to clients, we are concerned about getting this fixed.

Hi @mudassir.fayyaz any update on this? Since It’s been close to 3 months, we are slightly apprehensive about this.


I have observed your comments and regret to share that at present the issue is still unresolved. Actually, the issue is blocked owing to missing implementation in issue of Aspose.Slides for .NET. So, it is going to get resolved in that issue first and then in this issue. I request for your patience and we will share good news with you soon.

@Adnan.Ahmad Any update on this? Or do you have an ETA?
