PowerPoint Slides with pictures ! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to create a power point presentation with lots of slides  with 10-12 pictures each but later in future if i delete one picture in the middle then i will have to arrange all pictures again to get rid of blank space . I have to keep those pictures in the slide using priority list , is there a way to automatically  update slides once i delete picture in the middle?

    Thanks so much for your help.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, to automatically update slides as you want, we need to capture the delete event of Shape object or the change event of Slide object to reset the position of all Shapes in the Slide.

    But I'm afraid there is no such event for Shape object or Slide object exported in PowerPoint Object Model currently. There are only events for Application Object. So it's hard to triggle the deleting of a Shape and I fail to find a workaround to do that.

    If you have any suggestions about development of PowerPoint, please feel free to submit them in Office Feedback.
