Disable 'Floaties' Menu

In powerpoint, above the right click context menu there is another menu called the Floaties menu or Mini Toolbar.

How do you disable this menu? It can be achieved in Word and Excel with a macro that sets:

Options.ShowFloatiesMenu = False

However, this option is not available for PowerPoint. How else can it be done in PPT, and why not as above?

craigdev,

It sounds like the trust center on macros may be disabled.  It uses the same flag as word and excel.  Here is a link on how to check the trust center.  Let me know if this helps.

actually the sub im trying to use is ...

Sub DieFloatiesDie()
    Application.Options.ShowMenuFloaties = False
End Sub


... however ShowMenuFloaties is not available in ppt. I can run other macros without any issues.

craigdev,

I started digging into the objects in PP and tested your sub and now see your problem.  I went through all of the objects and found five associated to PP. How about this?

Sub DieFloatiesDie()
    Office.MsoBarPosition.MsoBarFloating = 0
End Sub

The default is set to 4.
