I am trying to add some custom buttons to the Fill Color control in PowerPoint 2013 (and hopefully 2010). If I get it working, I would also use the font color and line color the same way. Here is what I am trying to connect to:
User added an image

I have used the built-in controls utlity and found Fill color - and added a button. Alas, I think this command bar is an outdated control from 2003. As you can see the adxButton shows there, but nothing is showing in the actual PowerPoint mentu.
User added an image

Is it possible to add controls to these items?



PS. What is the proper method to attach screen shots here?

Hello Keith,

The Ribbon API doesn't support adding a custom control to a built-in gallery.

You cannot use that commandbar.

To add an image to your post, you put the image file onto a server and specify the URL in the IMG tag using the IMG button, see right above the reply form area.
