Renumber objects in a Powerpoint Document

I have a PowerPoint document that consists of many pages(slides) of images and on each slide there are several numbered images - the numbers are contained within a circle shape added with the Insert-Shape option.

Occasionally I will insert and or remove slides and move images around.

Is there a way to automatically renumber the images?

I'm assuming that it must be possible to write a macro that starts at the beginning, searches for each circle shape in turn an replaces the text.

I've attached a sample, the real document is currently 50+ slides.

I'm using PowerPoint 2013 by the way.

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro()

Idx = 1
For Each sld In ActivePresentation.Slides
    For Each Shp In sld.Shapes
        If Shp.AutoShapeType = msoShapeOval Then
            Shp.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = CStr(Idx)
            Idx = Idx + 1
        End If
    Next
Next
End Sub

Open in new window
