And maybe even have Microsoft take a look at it!

PowerPoint VBA Programming
Pasting text into an existing shape
This should work and it did prior to PowerPoint 2007:
Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange. _ InsertAfter.Paste
But since 2007, it generates the error -2147024809 (80070057) “The specified parameter has an invalid value.”
Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange. _ InsertAfter(" ").Paste
Add a comment below and we’ll look into it with a view to adding it to the list above.
