I'm creating an Add-in for PowerPoint 2010. Building a feature to let the user save slides to a slide library, then later select and insert them, all without using SharePoint or the Reuse slides pane.
The save routine presents a list of categories and keywords the user can select, then upon Saving, my code opens the category deck, appends the slide to the end of that and adds keyword tags to that slide, saves and closes the category deck, and also logs the save to an Excel sheet using ADODB.
When done, the PowerPoint ribbon has become non-responsive. Won't accept any clicks. If I resize my PowerPoint window, or switch to another application, I get control back. But that's just a workaround. Plus, next time I try my Save routine it crashes PowerPoint.
Anyone recognize this behavior and have a generic cause/solution? I'd rather not post my full code.
