I need to open my OS X application when any powerpoint presentation opens.
I got VBA call back when powerpoint open (Auto_Open()). But I need a call back for each presentation open.

 In windows we can open  each presentation in separate powerpoint app (difference instance).
In Mac , Powerpoint app will open once and all presentation will open under same powerpoint application .

I need a call back when each presentation file open and I need to do run code snippets in my cocoa application.

A possible work around is to write code to loop checking the presentations opened, and compare it with presentations already open before.
