Show me the transition, speed etc. of each slide

This bit of code demonstrates how you can list the transition properties of each slide in a presentation.
With a bit of work, you can combine this with other VBA macros that report on each slide.

Sub ListTransitionSettings()

    Dim osld As Slide

    For Each osld In ActivePresentation.Slides

        With osld.SlideShowTransition
            Debug.Print "Entry effect" & vbTab & NameThatTransition(.EntryEffect)
            '.EntryEffect = ppEffectCombHorizontal
            Debug.Print "Speed" & vbTab & .Speed
            '.Speed = ppTransitionSpeedFast
            If .AdvanceOnTime Then
                Debug.Print "Advance time" & vbTab & .AdvanceTime
            End If
            If .AdvanceOnClick Then
                Debug.Print "Advance on click"
            End If
        End With    ' transition

    Next    ' slide

End Sub

Function NameThatTransition(lTransition As Long) As String

    Select Case lTransition
        Case 0
            NameThatTransition = "None"
        ' and so on ... you'll need to edit these to get the string to
        ' match up with the transitions you use most often
        Case 1
            NameThatTransition = "1"
        Case 2
            NameThatTransition = "2"

        Case Else
            ' this just hands back a number for the ones you haven't matched up
            NameThatTransition = CStr(lTransition)
    End Select

End Function
