Message : Hi,
I had a problem regading the character sets supported by Aspose Slides.

Here is the piece of text that i copied from MSWord and which is included in the PPT generated ( by Aspose Slides).

“Double Quotes”

But in the slides the following is shown up

“Double Quotes”

Dear Bijesh,

Thanks for considering Aspose.Slides for .NET

To add quotation marks, you need to use escape sequence, you cannot add it directly. For example in C#, you will use

textFrame.Text="This is a quotation mark \". ";

And in VB.NET

textFrame.Text="This is a quotation mark "". ";

Please also see this code and the output presentation generated by it, which I have attached.

Code - C#


Presentation srcPres = new Presentation();

Slide srcSld = srcPres.GetSlideByPosition(1);

//Create a rectangle and hide its lines

Aspose.Slides.Rectangle rect = srcSld.Shapes.AddRectangle(300, 400, 5000, 1);

rect.LineFormat.ShowLines = false;

//Create a text box by adding textframe inside rectangle

TextFrame tf = rect.AddTextFrame("");

//Textframe will automatically wrap any line that exceeds its width

tf.WrapText = true;

//Textframe will grow the rectangle height if requires

tf.FitShapeToText = true;

//Add some text using TextFrame.TextProperty

tf.Text="\"Double Quotes\"";

//Add some text using Paragraph

//Clone the previous paragraph and change its text, and then add it

Paragraph para = new Paragraph(tf.Paragraphs[0]);

para.Text = "\"Double Quotes using Paragraph\"";


//Add some text using Portion

//Clone the previous portion inside the newly added paragraph, and change its text

//and then add it

Portion port = new Portion(para.Portions[0]);

port.Text = " \"Double Quotes using Portion\"";


//Write the presentation on disk
