As I discover errors, updates, and clarifications, I will list them here.
- In Chapter 2, in the section "PowerPoint, Windows, and Mac OS Settings" on pages 15 and 16, for PowerPoint 2011 (Mac),
the book says to go to the PowerPoint menu and choose Options.
It should say to go to the PowerPoint menu and choose Preferences. This can be found in two places:
"4. Show the Developer Tab in the Ribbon" and "5. Set Macro Security"
- In Chapter 9, page 170 discusses saving using ActivePresentation.Save. PowerPoint 2011 (Mac) seems to have
a bug so saving does not work. This is very unfortunate because saving with VBA can be very useful.
Furthermore, since it creates a run-time error, the procedure that it is in will stop running when it reaches
that line of code. If you are using 2011, you should either not use ActivePresentation.Save, or you should put
On Error Resume Next as a line before it (see Error Trapping on page 240).
