Thread: Insert the pound sign if a cursor is active

    Insert the pound sign if a cursor is active

    Hi,

    I am struggling to create a PowerPoint macro which inserts a pound sign:

    1. If a cursor position is active – the pound sign appears
    2. If it’s not a case, an error message appears reading: “Put your cursor somewhere”.


    When I run the macro, error message appears regardless of cursor being active or not. Do you have any idea how to fix it?

    Sub Insert_pound()
    
    
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    
    
    With ActiveWindow.Selection.TextRange
         .InsertAfter ("")
         End With
    
    
    ErrorHandler:
    MsgBox "Put your cursor somewhere"
     
    End Sub

    The code will always get to the error message you need to add an exit

    Sub Insert_pound()
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    With ActiveWindow.Selection.TextRange
         .InsertAfter ("")
    End With
    Exit Sub
    ErrorHandler:
    MsgBox "Put your cursor somewhere"
    End Sub
