VBA application events (or equivalent) for PowerPoint mac 2011

Does anyone know if there is an equivalent to application events in the Mac version of PowerPoint.

In the PC version, I can create a new class module, add the code below, select the App object in VBE's code window Object drop down I can then see a list of the application level events that are available in the VBE Procedures drop down in the code window:

Public WithEvents App As Application

Open in new window

I am particularly interested in reproducing these two events:

Sub App_WindowSelectionChange(ByVal Sel As Selection)
End Sub

Sub App_NewPresentation(ByVal Pres As Presentation)
End Sub

Open in new window

As far as I know, PowerPoint Events was not implemented in VBA for PowerPoint 2011 of the Mac.

As Rgonzo says - no real events in 2011. The pseudo events eg OnSlideShowPageChange work but that won't help with the two you mention.
