I have number of Shapes selected programmaticallly on a single sheet. Now I'd like to iterate through those Shapes. What would be a good way to do that?

I solved it by ...
Selection.Interior.Color = 192

I didn't need to iterate through the selected Shapes 'cos the above works. Seems pretty obvious!

Even though you don't need it, since you asked:

    Dim shp As Shape
    
    If TypeName(Selection) = "DrawingObjects" Then
        For Each shp In Selection.ShapeRange
            Debug.Print shp.Name
        Next shp
    End If

Open in new window

Just to answer the original question (in case another reader need to know how to do this), you can loop through all shapes in a selection like this:

Sub CheckShapes()
  Dim oShp As Shape
  
  For Each oShp In ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange
    Debug.Print oShp.Name
  Next
End Sub

Open in new window
