In PowerPoint, I'm trying to find a way to allow the user to select any symbol from the built-in Insert Symbols gallery, and capture the font and character code (Unicode) selected. I don't really want to insert the symbol at all, rather simply intercept the results of the dialog and do something else with them.
I know I can present the Insert Symbol gallery by using Application.CommandBars.Ex
ecuteMso ("SymbolInsert"), but I don't know how to capture the results.
I've used the following code elsewhere in PowerPoint to present a filepicker and capture the name of the file chosen, but I think filedialogs are a different animal. But this gets close to what I'm trying to do.
Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
fd.Title = "Select Background Image"
fd.InitialFileName = backpixfolder
If .Show = -1 Then
pickedpix = .SelectedItems(1)
