I can’t seem to get the text of the active slide in Keynote. I see that there is a text reference listed in the Keynote AppleDictionary, but it shows no parent object. I’ve tried using UI techniques but haven’t had luck with this either. Finally, I don’t see much about Keynote in the discussion strings at MacScripter, but anybody got an idea?
you can get the text of the first text frame of the current slide with
tell application "Keynote" title of current slide of slideshow 1 end tell
Thanks Stefan for showing me how to get the text of the first textbox of the current slide in Keynote. I suppose you would have told me if there were a way to get the other textbox text contents as well. If otherwise, please let us know.
