Hi,

As far as I know, PowerPoint Events was not implemented in VBA for PowerPoint 2016 of the Mac.

Rgonzo1971 is right. Application events are not yet supported in PowerPoint:mac 2016. I have successfully used another mechanism in PowerPoint:Mac though called ribbon command repurposing. I've only done this for FileSave and not FileOpen but perhaps this method could be used:
