I have an m file that uses saveppt2 but it will no longer work. What are the alternatives to saveppt2? Is it still supported?

It's 10 years old and I doubt the author, Jed, is supporting it.
What's not working about it? Are you using Windows? If so, maybe you could use ActiveX.

I cannot generate the .PPT using that older version since I am using 2018b. I believe the forums call for more modern options. Best regards. Yes. It is being run on Windows. Before running it I could not find the function but in older posts. Now, I know why.

Hi,
Makesure you're adding saveppt2 support package from here
There is an issue with the function, whenever it is used it is throwing an error which says 'Input to num2str must be numeric'
I have brought this issue to the concerened people.
As a workaround, you could open saveppt2.m file and replace addlParms.figure(i) with addlParms.figure(i).Number in the line 557, then function will work without any errors.
