Please, help immediately for a beginner (macro to hide text) .. Urgent :)
Good evening everyone ..
I am not an expert or even a learner in powerpoint stuff, and I've searched for this a lot but couldn't know what to do.
I have a powerpoint file that I want to hide all text in it, which means that I've created, say 70 slides, and each contains a picture and a text box in which I wrote. I want to hide all what I've written in these boxes, an I have hundreds of slides now so deleting text in each one individually will take all my time, and I do this now a few times each semester (studying purposes). I've read on the internet that there is an option called macro, in which I type a command and it gets applied to all slides. Can anyone here tell me how to create a macro and what to write so that all text is hidden ?
Thank you so much in advance

Welcome to the Lounge as a new poster!
Here's some code that may work for you but it does have some limitations as shown in the comments. I don't normally do macros in PP so maybe someone else has a better solution.
Option Explicit ' Assumes Slide background is set via Single Master Slide ' No slides with LOCAL background ' All text is Black or Automatic Sub SetInvisible() Dim lSlideColor As Long Dim oSlide As Slide Dim oShape As Shape lSlideColor = ActivePresentation.SlideMaster.Background.Fill.ForeColor.RGB For Each oSlide In ActivePresentation.Slides For Each oShape In oSlide.Shapes If oShape.Type = msoPlaceholder Then oShape.TextFrame.TextRange.Font.Color.RGB = lSlideColor End If Next oShape Next oSlide End Sub Sub SetVisible() Dim lSlideColor As Long Dim oSlide As Slide Dim oShape As Shape For Each oSlide In ActivePresentation.Slides For Each oShape In oSlide.Shapes If oShape.Type = msoPlaceholder Then oShape.TextFrame.TextRange.Font.Color.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0) End If Next oShape Next oSlide End Sub
