Placing Title Textbox

Driving me mad...

I'm using this code to place a new title in a slide. Can not work out how to specify where it is placed or its size though...???

With PPSlide.Shapes
        If .HasTitle Then
          .Title.Delete
        End If
        With .AddTitle.TextFrame.TextRange
          .Text = Cells(Row + 1, Column + 1).Value
          .Font.Color.RGB = RGB(Red:=51, Green:=51, Blue:=153)
        End With
      End With

Hi Darren,

(untested aside from checking properties)
What about something like

      With PPSlide.Shapes
        If .HasTitle Then
          .Title.Delete
        End If
        With .AddTitle
          .Left = 10
          .Top = 10
          .Height = 20
          .Width = 20
          With .TextFrame.TextRange
            .Text = Cells(Row + 1, Column + 1).value
            .Font.Color.RGB = RGB(Red:=51, Green:=51, Blue:=153)
          End With
      End With

I noticed the TextFrame also has an .autosize method

Ah, I was trying to add .Left etc in the wrong place.

Thank you again!

Glad to help! The .TextFrame has .marginXXXX properties as well to make it a little nicer, and the .textrange has .boundXXXX properties as well, but that last one doesn't seem to do much more than the .margins

Again, let me know if you need anything else (and adding it to this Q or one of the others would be fine with me)
