Why isn't it possible to insert images from an Office app into a PowerPoint slide? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the title asks: Why isn't it possible to insert images from an app into a PowerPoint slide?

    The user manually have to paste images copied to the clipboard.

    Will it be made possible in the future to let an app automatically insert an image into a given place in a slide?

  • Hi P43R0,

    Thanks for the feedback about Office add-ins.

    As far as I know, we are only able to insert text into the selection by using Document.setSelectedDataAsync method for PowerPoint and PowerPoint online.  As a workaround, you may can consider developing a VSTO add-in.

    If you want Office add-ins to support inserting images, I suggest that you submit the feedback from link below:
