Readonly access to the ShapeName property


When designing our app for the MSPowerpoint API, we used the ShapeName property to identify specific shapes. Is there any way we could get readonly access to that property for Shapes and Placeholders?

Since your API separates Shapes from Placeholders, that would give us an opportunity to search both lists for the ShapeName that we are currently tracking to pull back the correct object.



Dear Matt,

We added read-only Shape.AlternativeText property specially for searching shapes.


Does this sort of Information exist on Placeholders? I need some similar property that I can check on Placeholders too.



Dear Matt,

AlternativeText property was added to the TextHolder class.
Please check new 1.3.3 hot fix.
