More information about this security update

Nonsecurity-related fixes that are included in this security update

This security update also fixes the following issues:

  • A problem exists in the object model, where .Parent.Parent.Parent on an item in the Hyperlinks collection returns Nothing instead of the TextFrame object that contains the hyperlink. With this fix, you can traverse from the item in the Hyperlinks collection to the Shape that contains it by using .Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent. 
  • A problem exists in the object model where trying to open certain corrupted files by using Presentations.Open causes a modal dialog to appear and block the execution of the script. With this fix, Presentations.Open throws a run-time error for which the calling script can provide an error handler. No modal dialog box appears.
  • A problem exists in the object model where Presentation.Guides does not return the Guides collection in the presentation.
  • A problem exists in the object model where an exception that is thrown in the event handler of one add-in prevents the event for other add-ins.
  • A problem exists in the object model where retrieving the value of Presentation.Saved and then closing the presentation causes a dialog to appear that prompts the user to save the changes even if no changes are made to the presentation. With the fix, the dialog box no longer appears if no changes are made and the presentation is closed.
  • After you cancel print for a presentation during the printing process in PowerPoint 2013, you cannot print the presentation any longer. In addition, when you print the presentation again, you receive the following error message:
    Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup.
  • Removes duplicate hotkeys in the Record Slide Show dialog box for Czech language in PowerPoint 2013.
  • Updates the PowerPoint crash-reporting feature to make crash investigation more reliable.
  • Improves the user experience by removing the Online Audio option from the Media section on the INSERT tab in PowerPoint 2013. This is because the Office.com Clip Art service is no longer supported.
