Returns a String that represents the author as for a specified Comment object. Read-only.
This property returns only the author's name. To return the author's initials, use the AuthorInitials property. Specify the author of a comment when you add a new comment to the presentation.
The following example adds a comment to the first slide of the active presentation and then displays the author's name and initials in a message.
Sub GetAuthorName() With ActivePresentation.Slides(1) .Comments.Add Left:=100, Top:=100, Author:="Jeff Smith", _ AuthorInitials:="JS", _ Text:="This is a new comment added to the first slide." MsgBox "This comment was created by " & _ .Comments(1).Author & " (" & .Comments(1).AuthorInitials & ")." End With End Sub
