This article demonstrates how to automatically shrink text to fit a shape or how to automatically resize a shape to fit text by using Spire.Presentation for Java.

import com.spire.presentation.*;

import java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D;

public class AutoFitTextOrShape {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

        //create Presentation instance 
        Presentation presentation = new Presentation();

        //get the first slide 
        ISlide slide = presentation.getSlides().get(0);

        //add a shape to slide 
        IAutoShape textShape1 = slide.getShapes().appendShape(ShapeType.RECTANGLE, new Rectangle2D.Float(50,50,200,80));

        //add text to shape
        textShape1.getTextFrame().setText("Shrink text to fit shape. Shrink text to fit shape. Shrink text to fit shape. Shrink text to fit shape. Shrink text to fit shape.");

        //set the auto-fit type to normal, which means the text automatically shrinks to fit the shape when text overflows the shape
        textShape1.getTextFrame().setAutofitType(TextAutofitType.NORMAL);

        //add another shape to slide 
        IAutoShape textShape2 = slide.getShapes().appendShape(ShapeType.RECTANGLE, new Rectangle2D.Float(350, 50, 200, 80));
        textShape2.getTextFrame().setText("Resize shape to fit text.");

        //set the auto-fit type to shape, which means the shape size automatically decreases or increases to fit text
        textShape2.getTextFrame().setAutofitType(TextAutofitType.SHAPE);

        //save to file 
        presentation.saveToFile("output/AutoFit.pptx", FileFormat.PPTX_2013);
    }
}
