PPT 2003 OLE shape tags disappear in 2007

Postby Arno » Thu, 14 Dec 2006 06:29:26 GMT

Hello,

did anyone encounter the same problem and found a work-around: After
loading a .ppt (PowerPoint 2003 format) file in PowerPoint 2007, any
OLE shapes (e.g., Office 2003 charts, but also other OLE shapes) have
an empty Shape.Tags collection. It does not matter whether the file was
saved in Office 2003 or in 2007 (as .ppt). It works fine for non-OLE
shapes.

TIA,

Arno

Hi Arno,

Thanks for your feedback!

After I make a test, I can reproduce your scenario.
Currently I am researching to see if there is any workaround for this issue.
If I get any update, I will get back and post here ASAP.

If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know,
Thanks!

Hi Arno,

This is a kindly update for this issue.
I have reported the issue to our product team, and they confirmed this is a 
problem in the product.
If the issue is urgent, you may want to work with Microsoft Customer 
Service and Support (CSS) for a faster resolution e.g. request a hotfix. 
Once you open a Support incident with Microsoft CSS, a dedicated Support 
Professional can work with you in a more efficient manner. This support 
incident should be free.

Hello Peter,

I found a possibly related problem with the Office 2007 Compatibility
Pack for Office 2003. When using it to save and then load a file using
the .pptx file format in PowerPoint 2003, the Tags collection is also
gone, just like when loading/saving .ppt with Office 2007.

Regards,

Arno

Hi Arno,

That isn't surprising. The Compatibility Pack uses nearly the same code 
as PPT itself.

P.S.: I love your products :)

Hello Patrick,

I still would like to get this bug logged at MS, so that others (like
our customers) can specifically request it to be fixed. Our code is
full of work-arounds for Office bugs already, would be nice to take
some out eventually...

Arno

P.S. Nice blog!

Hi Arno,

Thanks for your reporting.
I think this should be caused by same reason in your previous issue.

Since the Compatibility pack is for reading Office 2007, so its code should 
be similar with Office 2007 application to read PPTX (office 2007) file. As 
we discussed before, this should be an design change that we use a new text 
engine in Office 2007.

If you have any concern, please let me know.

Thanks for your feedback and understanding!

1.Shapes, lines disappear in PPT 2003 SP3

I have the problem that after using a new template installed recently for a 
while PowerPoint starts to suffer from some memory insufficiency and all 
lines and outlines are not displayed anymore, also some pictures become 
invisible. The only way to fix it to remove all add-ins and re-install them 
again. But the add-ins worked with the previous version of the template and 
we only changed the code in the way that it uses blue instead of black, etc. 
Might this be a problem of the template or the add-in? 

Thanks

3.PPT 2007 VBA: How to retrieve selected text from grouped shapes

Suppose I have grouped a textbox and some sort of graphic.  Now I select just 
a part of the text.   

ActiveWindow.Selection.Type will show as ppSelectedText, but I cannot use 
ActiveWindow.Selection.TextRange to get at the selected text, because VBA 
says the selection consists of multiple shapes.  (??? This problem doesn't 
exist if we're not talking about grouped shapes.)  I have thrashed around 
trying various techniques, and examined a lot of objects in debug, but I 
can't seem to find any place or path that will lead me to something that 
represents *only* the selected text. 

I'd like (in VBA) to get a textrange that represents *just* the selected 
text.  Is that possible?  How?

Thanks!

5.PPT 2000 to PPT 2003 Disappearing Act

A colleague of mine is experiencing a version snafu. Using 
PPT 2000, she edits a PPT created in 2003. Her edits do 
not show up in the newer version when the originator 
accesses the file following her edit.

Our organization is so far not sensing the necessaity to 
have the primary PPT editor using the same newer version 
as our presenters. Is there a patch or workaround? 

Thanks very much.
