I'm afraid that no. RoboTask has not direct interface for PowerPoint.
Maybe this is possible by using VB Script or JS Script.
But it's necessary to learn the object model of Powerpoint.

Just my 2 cents: what you CAN do is after every change of a slide by a keystroke (F5 or arrow right) increasing a counter variable. (Be ware of animations in your slide!)
The total number of slides by the way is in the META file info of the file.

Yes of course, but it seems pckopat0699 wants to save the current slide number

The other remark is just for extra info. To learn, or to give extra idea's.
