Problems, Problems, Problems

we have big problems with the use of the Power Point API: The current version is full of bugs, versions are exchanged without prior notice, new versions are withdrawn ...

Why is that? When to expect a debugged, final version??

        Hi Thomas, what exactly do you find buggy with the PowerPoint API? My addins are running for years with comprehensive functions in all versions 2007+. I only had to reworked userforms when MS changed from SDI to MDI in Ppt 2013 where userforms became sort of modal to the presentation they were opened in. (Userforms that serve as palettes should stay available in all presentations.) And of course, some of the addins' functions may be available in certain version only (like section with 2010, drawing guides in 2013, ...). Sometimes 32 bit and 64 bit versions behaving a bit differently. Maybe some of your experience actually comes from old PowerPoint shapes (2003 and before)? Such legacy shapes may portray odd behavior like lines with undefined line width. So depending on the mix of presentations you are working with you may run into say challenges, many of which you still can address in programming when you've identified the odd property of a shape. I am actually fairly happy with most of the PowerPoint API over the years (as are my customers). Kind regards, service@mso-dlx.com
