Assigning Keyboard Shortcuts to Macros

To assign keyboard shortcuts to macros within PowerPoint files, your macros need to meet the following 3 requirements:

  1. The macro needs to be in a Code Module (not a UserForm or a Class Module).
  2. The macro should be taking in no parameters.
  3. The macro signature should be as follows:

    Sub YourMacroName()
        '
        ' Your macro code.
        '
    End Sub

    or

    Public Sub YourMacroName()
        '
        ' Your macro code.
        '
    End Sub
