Issues in html table to pptx conversion using Java

We found another issue in downloaded pptx file, in Table grid if we edit the text box with more characters & text box size increases, we need to move all other nearby text boxes to adjust the formatting to fit the view. Text overflows from the grid and shows distorted view. Moving the content of table is also tedious as person has to select complete text to move from one place to another.
Appreciate your quick response and also any update on previous issue ?

The issue with table data is that the content in the HTML file looks like a table, but in fact is built from absolutely positioned <div> . That is why data overflows. Such type of content is not supported by the API.

Please advise how we can resolve this issue, this seems to a major road blocker before we proceed with using this tool ?, currently our downloaded pptx is not conveniently editable by users. If we buy the license then will you able to add this feature in the tool and also share ETA for adding it? Also kindly update any progress on previous issue.


As far as this issue is concerned, we already briefed on this here.
However, CONVERSIONJAVA-1256 (issue) is still under investigation.


Could you please specify the API version that you are using (e.g. 20.10, 21.1)? Also, share the code that you wrote for the conversion process.

Hi, we are using Group docs jar file(20.2) and not the API.
Kindly advise which jar version has this fix available


Could you please also share the sample code?

We cannot reproduce CONVERSIONJAVA-1256 using latest JAR. You can also try JAR version 21.1.
