Thanks for testing and validating my code

As you said I downloaded the trunk version from svn (git svn clone https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/poi/trunk
poisvngit --revision HEAD), then I built using ant jar. I added these jars into my project
and then I assume now I get the latest version. However it did not work.

Still getting
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xmlbeans.impl.values.XmlComplexContentImpl cannot
be cast to org.openxmlformats.schemas.drawingml.x2006.main.CTPath2DQuadBezierTo

I tried xmlbeans version 2.3.0 and version 2.6.0 also but I don't this is the problem. I am
also running Java 8 on OS X

Your sample code works with current POI trunk, maybe you can try with the
latest version or at least a recent nightly build to see if your problem is
actually fixed there already.

Dear Developers,

Is there anyone monitoring the stack overflow forum for #apache-poi ?

I have created a couple of post but I haven't gotten any replies recently

Besides that, I have one more issue when drawing XSLFFreeFormShape. I am
trying to draw a kind of bone shape, however I am getting an exception in
the low-level xml classes. I am adding the class.

public class TestBoneShape {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            XMLSlideShow pptx = new XMLSlideShow();
            XSLFSheet slide = pptx.createSlide();

            XSLFFreeformShape freeformShape = slide.createFreeform();

            freeformShape.setPath(boneShape(300, 300, 200, 100, 20));
            freeformShape.setAnchor(new Rectangle2D.Double(300, 300, 500,

            FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("custom-

        } catch (Exception e) {

    static Path2D.Double boneShape(double x,
                                double y,
                                double width,
                                double height,
                                double loopWidth) {

        Path2D.Double bone = new Path2D.Double();
        double right = x + width;
        double bottom = y + height;

        double xAux = x + loopWidth;
        double yAux = y + loopWidth / 2;
        bone.moveTo(xAux, yAux);
        xAux = right - loopWidth;
        bone.lineTo(xAux, yAux);
        yAux = y + height / 2;
        bone.quadTo(right, y, right, yAux);

        xAux = right - loopWidth;
        yAux = bottom - loopWidth / 2;
        bone.quadTo(right, bottom, xAux, yAux);

        xAux = x + loopWidth;
        bone.lineTo(xAux, yAux);
        yAux = y + height / 2;
        bone.quadTo(x, bottom, x, yAux);

        xAux = x + loopWidth;
        yAux = y + loopWidth / 2;
        bone.quadTo(x, y, xAux, yAux);


        return bone;

Thank you
