Class Selection (PowerPoint VBA)
The class Selection represents the selection in the specified document window. The Selection object is deleted whenever you change slides in an active slide view (the Type property will return ppSelectionNone).
To use a Selection class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example
Dim slc as Selection Set slc = ActiveWindow.Selection
Selection class variables can be set using the DocumentWindow.Selection procedure.
These are the main methods of the Selection class
Copy - Copies the specified object to the Clipboard.
Delete - Deletes the specified Selection object.

Dim sreChildShapeRange As ShapeRange Set sreChildShapeRange = ActiveWindow.Selection.ChildShapeRange
HasChildShapeRange true if the selection contains child shapes.
