New Application level events in PowerPoint 2013

 

2013 has two new application level events available to the developers. Namely Application.AfterDragDropOnSlide and the Application.AfterShapeSizeChange. I could not get AfterDragDropOnSlide to fire in the public preview build but AfterShapeSizeChange worked just fine.

Application.AfterShapeSizeChange: It fires the event as soon as the user resizes a shape on the slide. If you select multiple shapes and resize then an event is fired for each of the shapes resized.

Supported versions: PowerPoint 2013
