Power Point 2007 shapes context menu items RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,
    In version 2003 I add my menu items to the shape's context menu items ( when user clicks shape and then right mouse button).  I search for CommandBars["Shortcut Menus"] and then for Draw.Slide Background or Draw.Shapes. It worked ok, but on 2007 version I cannot repeat this functionality,

    Regards,

  • Hi Piotr,

    I have realized that the functionality is not available as a part of PowerPoint 2007. The reason is the PowerPoint 2007 is more inclined towards ribbon based interfaces rather than the classical context menus.

    Please refer this blog for futher information.
