Open Powerpoint presentation in slideshow mode

Recommended Posts

I'm using the file filter object to select a particular powerpoint lecture from a folder full of lectures.


I'd love to have a variant where I could select the lecture but have it open in slideshow mode rather than edit mode.


Anyone know how this can be done?

Create a File Action for *.pptx and/or *.ppt files called, say, "Run Presentation", then connect it to a Run Script Action. Set language to /usr/bin/osascript, and enter the following script:

tell application "Microsoft PowerPoint"
    open "{query}"
    run slide show (active presentation's slide show settings)
end tell
