Project Description
AutoStyle IT is a PowerPoint Addin that duplicates the selected slide x number of times so that each bullet (paragraph) will be highlighted on their own slide.

AutoStyle IT is my first PowerPoint Addin.

Now that I am making videos for Data Juggler Software, I found myself repeating the same task over and over in PowerPoint.

I found it was nice in my videos to highlight one bullet on a slide and darken the other bullets so that I could demonstrate one task or feature.

This wasn't so hard, duplicate the current slide x number of times, then highlight each bullet the desired colors. The problem would occur when I started making edits to a slide, and I would then find myself editing multiple slides and repeating the whole process again.

So I decided to create my first PowerPoint Addin.

Open the DataJuggler.Office.PowerPoint.AutoStyleIT.sln in either Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Studio 2012.

Run the project and this should open PowerPoint 2010 (obviously you must have PowerPoint 2010 installed).

Open the Sample PowerPoint presentation 'Regionizer.pptx" which is located in the Samples directory of the download.

Select the second slide, and click the Auto Style button.

This should duplicate the selected slide two times, and highlight one bullet on each slide.

I am working on an Installer, but for some reason the User Control installs but the button click doesn't do anything. I am releasing the code so that I can ask for help in a forum post with the code live.

If anyone is real good at making installation programs or VSTO please contact me at
