Here comes new release of Aspose.Slides 19.10 for .NET and Java, which has been enriched with new features. Now, we offer support for Font FallBack and Prompt Text using Aspose.Slides.

Support For Font FallBack

A Font Fallback is a reserve typeface containing symbols for as many Unicode characters as possible. When a display system encounters a character that is not part of the repertoire of any of the other available fonts, a symbol from a fallback font is used instead. Typically, a fallback font will contain symbols representative of the various types of Unicode characters. This support has now been made part of Aspose.Slides too.

The following code example shows how to set font fall back using FontFallBackRule objects.

The similar Java based example for this is:

Set Prompt Text in a Placeholder

A Prompt Text is a text that appears in a text field when it is first load but that disappears when a user starts typing into the text field. This is basically for user ease to get to know what is to be entered in the selected field. We know that Standard and pre-built layouts contain placeholders with default text like Click to add a title or Click to add subtitle. Using Aspose.Slides you can add prompt text manually by accessing the default placeholders.

The code snippet below shows how to use this feature:
