Below macro records the position and size of each shape in the active presentation.

How is the code to be re-written if I only would like to record the position and size of the (only) shape on the current slide?

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Dim oSl As Slide
    Dim oSh As Shape

    For Each oSl In ActivePresentation.Slides
        For Each oSh In oSl.Shapes
            With oSh
                .Tags.Add Name:="L", Value:=CStr(.Left)
                .Tags.Add Name:="T", Value:=CStr(.Top)
                .Tags.Add Name:="H", Value:=CStr(.Height)
                .Tags.Add Name:="W", Value:=CStr(.Width)
            End With
