PowerPoint VBA: Setting a Paragraph's First Line Indent and Hanging Indent

Using VBA, I want to set the first line indent and hanging indent for a bullet. The ParagraphFormat object doesn't expose either.

I found the solution. We have to use the TextFrame2 object, not the TextFrame object.

Shape.TextFrame2.TextRange.ParagraphFormat.FirstLineIndent = Application.InchesToPoints(-0.1)
Shape.TextFrame2.TextRange.ParagraphFormat.LeftIndent = Application.InchesToPoints(0.2)

I see you've answered your own question but just as a side note, if your VBA is being designed to run in PowerPoint, there is no InchesToPoints function in the PowerPoint library so you just need to multiply inches by 72 or reference the Excel library or run from Excel.
