    Sharing Custom Toolbars (PowerPoint 2000 SR-1)

    Hi! I have done a search on this topic, and while I found a few posts, I didn't see any real resolution for this. I know in Word, it's easy to save custom functions and toolbars within a template, but you cannot do this in PowerPoint. Can anyone suggest a solution to this? I have seen that you can save the toolbars/functions as an Add-in, but then people need to install the Add-in to access them. I have seen suggestions of building a toolbar at runtime, but I'm not sure how to do this in PP. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    magella

    Unfortunately, porting settings from PPT isn't as easy as it is with, say, Word. http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00292.htm should give you some ideas, though.

    I've not had much luck copying the *.PCB file to other systems and having the toolbar settings "take," although that should work -- in theory, at least.

    The Save My Settings wizards should help, though. I had a heck of a time finding those on MS's site, but luckily, Google does a better job searching Microsoft than Microsoft itself does!

    I assume that you have seen <post#=293320>post 293320</post#>. It says more or less the same as Can I move my custom settings from one computer to another?

    Unlike Word or Excel, PowerPoint has no automatic macros such as AutoExec, since the 2000 version, it does have application-level events. See Make PPT respond to events. An example of creating toolbar buttons in code can be found here.
