Shape name


Is it possible to find out a shape’s name?


Shapes don’t have any names. MS PowerPoint generates it dynamically.
These names are not the same for different versions of PowerPoint and
different for localized PowerPoints.

Please use AlternativeText or Tags instead.


I’m using Shyam’s Toolbox to change the dynamically created names.

I’ll use something else, but it would be a nice addition for my future projects.
