I cannot figure out for the life of me, how to get multiple macros to execute in PowerPoint when NOT in "presentation" aka show "F5." Is there any way that anyone is aware of to initiate a macro on demand/mouse click, instead of just having it run as part of a presentation?

The Add-In type that is mentioned is one that makes a button in the Add-In section of the ribbon. I want to be able to have something that actually sits on the slide.

Ah. A button on the slide would trigger the macro in slide show view. I don't think you can use a button on the slide to trigger a macro in editing view. Perhaps one of the PPT coders will be along to confirm.

There's no way to make a slide button run a macro in edit view.

Options are:

A) as Echo suggested
B) A new ribbon button coded in XML, could be a menu to run the selected macro and best as an AddIn
C) a non modal form with a button(s) to run the macro(s)
D) Add the macro(s) to the QAT
