    I believe now, I've to activate each shape in every slide but I don't know how to do it. I've tried to use an integer to point to each slide but I had no success.
    Can someone help me?!

    Maybe you don't need the select, try just commenting it out.

    Doing that, the error went to the paste data type. It gave me this:

    • You do not need to select the slide
    • You are using oSh as a For..Next control variable; but then, inside the loop you are pointing it to two other shapes. You need to use a separate variable for that:
      Set oSh = curr_slide.Shapes(3) ... ---->....Set curr_shp = curr_slide.Shapes(3), etc.
    • I don't think you can use .PasteSpecial with the .Cut. Instead, maybe Copy, PasteSpecial, Cut curr_shp.Shapes(3) .... [What happens if there is no third shape?]

    I'm not sure about using SET with PasteSpecial

    I commented out the select and it gave me the error related with the data type. I tried to use a separate variable for the shapes inside the loop but it also still gives me the data type error. Cut or copy also give the same result. There was no problem with the datatype in Office 2007 =\

    tks for the help!

    Hi

    I've solved the problem, basically by defining my datatype with the associated ID number instead of indicating the traditional "ppPasteXPTO". I've also used the number of the Bitmap format file instead of the PNG since it allows me to reduce the size of the ppt but it's not so heavy in the image compression like the PNG is. Here is the final code:
