  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/presentations.currentonly
  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/presentations

select()

Selects only the PageElement in the active presentation and removes any previous selection. This is same as calling select(replace) with true.

A script can only access the selection of the user who is running the script, and only if the script is bound to the presentation.

This sets the parent Page of the PageElement as the current page selection.

var slide = SlidesApp.getActivePresentation().getSlides()[0];
var pageElement = slide.getPageElements()[0];
// Only select this page element and replace any previous selection.
pageElement.select();

Authorization

Scripts that use this method require authorization with one or more of the following scopes:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/presentations.currentonly
  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/presentations

select(replace)

Selects the PageElement in the active presentation.

A script can only access the selection of the user who is running the script, and only if the script is bound to the presentation.

Pass true to this method to select only the PageElement and remove any previous selection. This also sets the parent Page of the PageElement as the current page selection.

Pass false to select multiple PageElement objects. The PageElement objects must be in the same Page.

The following conditions must be met while selecting a page element using a false parameter:

  1. The parent Page of the PageElement object must be the current page selection.
  2. There should not be multiple Page objects selected.

To make sure that’s the case the preferred approach is to select the parent Page first using Page.selectAsCurrentPage() and then select the page elements in that page.

var slide = SlidesApp.getActivePresentation().getSlides()[0];
// First select the slide page, as the current page selection.
slide.selectAsCurrentPage();
// Then select all the page elements in the selected slide page.
var pageElements = slide.getPageElements();
for (var i = 0; i < pageElements.length; i++) {
  pageElements[i].select(false);
}

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
replaceBooleanIf true, the selection replaces any previous selection; otherwise the selection is added to any previous selection.
