Manage Fonts

To manage font properties of a paragraph using Aspose.Slides for Java:

  1. Create an instance of the Presentation class.
  2. Obtain a slide’s reference by using its index.
  3. Access the Placeholder shapes in the slide and typecast them to AutoShape.
  4. Get the Paragraph from the TextFrame exposed by AutoShape.
  5. Justify the paragraph.
  6. Access a Paragraph’s text Portion.
  7. Define the font using FontData and set the Font of the text Portion accordingly.
    1. Set the font to bold.
    2. Set the font to italic.

  9. Save the modified presentation to a PPTX file.

The implementation of the above steps is given below. It takes an unadorned presentation and formats the fonts on one of the slides. The screenshots that follow show the input file and how the code snippets change it. The code changes the font, the color, and the font style.
