  1. Ability to convert Add-In slide to image

    Hello,

    I would like to convert selected Add-In slide images to an image. For example to base64 or png format.

    Currently the JavaScript Api doesn't support this.

    For an old project I used the following method to get this done in a VSTO Add-In:

        public string SlideToImage(Slide slide, string filePath)
    
    {
    // Store images in the given path with slide name e.g. C:\Users\BramR\AppData\Local\Temp\2\slide_afbeeldingen.jpg
    var path = $"{filePath}\\{slide.Name}.jpg";
    slide.Export(path, "PNG", 1024, 768);
    return path;
    }

    Is there a way I could do this with the new Office Add-In generation?

    Regards,
    Bram

  5. I would like to be able to run search and replace operation in MSWord and PowerPoint documents from command line without "button clicks".

    I have a document with several fields the contents of which changes from project to project. Instead of opening this document in PowerPoint and running search/replace for each field, with a lot of keyboard/mouse input, I would like to be able to run a utility from command line, which would do it for me. For text files I could do it easily in Linux using sed, awk, etc. I need to be able to do the same for Word and PowerPoint files

  7. Add mini timer on slides.

    Often you have very limited time on performance, and every person want to know how much time it have to make the presentation in time. I think it would be very useful and cool feature to know hou much time you have directly on slides. Maybe mini timer at the bottom corner of slides. And very cool if i can to configure it. For example I have an hour on performance and i have presentation with 20 slides. So i know that i have approx. 3 minutes on each slide. So i configure this built-in timer on 3 minutes and…

  8. exhibit linked slide on hyperlinks

    when on presentation mode - hovering over a hyperlinked item should display the linked slide/file in small and mute to the man presenting.
    sometimes in complicated and long presentations, it is very much needed to see where the links on the slide presented/next slide takes us!! it is useful and reassuring in case of forgetting or trying to decide whether to hop or not to the linked slide/file

  10. Fix PowerPoint hangs related to DisableADALatopWAMOverride=1

    Occasionally, when a presentation is opened while a modal (add-in) dialog is open, PowerPoint seems to get into an infinite loop reading the following registry value:
    HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Identity\DisableADALatopWAMOverride

    PowerPoint does not show as "Not responding" but effectively it is not responding to any clicks.

    We have only seen this behavior on machines where DisableADALatopWAMOverride was set to 1. This cannot reliably be reproduced but happens on different machines for different users. All of this seems to be related to Office 365 authentication.

  11. Fix PowerPoint's Presentation.SaveCopyAs method when saving to local OneDrive folder

    Presentation.SaveCopyAs fails when trying to save to the local OneDrive folder. Steps to reproduce (tested with 16.0.11001 and 16.0.10730):

    VBA:
    ActivePresentation.SaveCopyAs Environ("userprofile") & "\OneDrive\OneDriveSaveCopyAsTest.pptx"
    This does not give an error, but does not save the copy.

    C#:
    ActivePresentation.SaveCopyAs(Environment.ExpandEnvironmentVariables(@"%userprofile%\OneDrive\OneDriveSaveCopyAsTest.pptx"));
    This throws a COMException with HRESULT 0x80CD1001.

  13. PowerPoint 2016 Chart filter issue

    PowerPoint chart filter shows "The linked file is not available" when the filter is clicked for the second time.

    When troubleshooting the issue found out the cause as Excel VSTO Add-in which handles "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" Event in ThisAddin.vb. Even without any code in "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" causes this error. If I comment 'Application_WorkbookOpen' then it works fine.

    This happens for other Workbook events as well.

    Posted the same issue with a sample excel add-in in msdn fourm. Please go through for more information.

    Our add-in is deployed for more that 5000 users globally. It will be great if this issue…

    A feature that can analyse colors used in the presentation and suggest correction for better readability would be most useful.

  18. Add a call to change the bitmap in a picture

    At present when we need to change the bitmap in a picture, we need to delete the existing picture (shape) object and then insert a new one. And when doing so we need to cop all the properties of the picture across.

    Just like we can presently change the position, seize, etc. of an existing picture, provide the ability to change the bitmap.
