Have the follwoing code:

pptSlide.Shapes.Range(2).TextFrame.TextRange.Paragraphs(3).text = vbNewLine & "Priority:     1     2     3"

Based on a query I need to draw a red box around either the 1, 2, or 3 on the slide.  How can i get the x and y of the paragraph(3) to do so?  Unless there is an alternative method that is easier :)

Dim otxR As TextRange
Dim myBox As Shape
Set otxR = pptSlide.Shapes.Range(2).TextFrame.TextRange.Paragraphs(3)
Set myBox = pptSlide.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, Left:=otxR.BoundLeft, _
Top:=otxR.BoundTop, _
Width:=otxR.BoundWidth, _
Height:=otxR.BoundHeight)
myBox.Fill.Visible = False
myBox.Line.ForeColor.RGB = vbRed

NOTE because you added a NewLine the box may draw around the blank newline! You may need to change the paragraph number to 4
