Details

a paragraph is a set of text that ends with an end of line. Read pot to see how to get different font formats. If an end of line is required, a new paragraph is required.

When document is a pptx object, two positioning methods are available.

If arguments offx, offy, width, height are missing, position and dimensions will be defined by the width and height of the next available shape of the slide. This dimensions can be defined in the layout of the PowerPoint template used to create the pptx object.

If arguments offx, offy, width, height are provided, they become position and dimensions of the new shape.

Also, when document is a pptx object, shading and border settings of argument par.properties will have no effect.

If character values are used to fill slides, parameter append will be ignored.
