In PowerPoint, ActiveWindow.Selection.Type
can return one of four types : None, Slides, Shapes or Text.
When in the Slide Master view and a single layout is selected in the thumbnail pane, the selection type returned is Slides and the following returns a Master object as expected:
Set obj = ActiveWindow.View.Slide
But, when more than one custom layout is selected in the thumbnail pane, the following returns an error:
Set obj = ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange
The error : "Selection (unknown member) : Invalid request. SlideRange cannot be constructed from a Master."
So my question is "how can I return a collection of custom layouts based on the current selection when the selection comprises more than one layout?"
