Clear all the animations from a presentation
 

If you wish to temporarily disable the animations please make use of the slide show settings.
Select Slide Show | Set up show... and select the show options to 'Show without animations'.

However if you wish to remove all assigned animations completely, use the following code to remove all the animations from the active presentation.

Note: If you clear animation from the wrong presentation DO NOT save that file. Simply close the file and reopen it and the animation settings set will not be lost.

Exporting All Slide Titles To  A Text File

 


This routine exports all Slide titles into a text file. It makes use of the HasTitle property to ascertain the existence of a title on the slide and then proceeds to locate the Title PlaceHolder. It prompts the user for a filename and then writes the title texts into it. If you find this routine useful you would be able to extend its functionality to copying the texts to the clipboard.
