table class for Powerpoint API

table class for Powerpoint API

for the most of my previously implemented VBA projects in PowerPoint, it was necessary to do text replacements. My customers are demanding more and more cloud-enabled solutions. For this and many other reasons, I would like to work with Office Add-Ins.

The shape class was included with the API 1.4 and text replacements can thus be carried out in shapes. But if the text is contained in a Powerpoint table, the text cannot be accessed, because the table class is not yet supported.

--> Please prioritize the incorporation of the table class into the PowerPoint API :smile:

Commenting to upvote. This would definitely be useful.

We also have a VSTO add-in and this limitation from the Office JS API makes it difficult to migrate to the new framework although our customers would really like to start using the cloud solution
