I'm hoping to get either height and width or (as is more commonly the case) the bounds of the slide show window. Show Scrollbar = mso False ' might or might not need this . Translation to Applescript is left to the discretion of the reader.
You'd need to change the slide show settings of the active presentation before launching it to do this. When you say "slide show in viewed in a window mode", you mean to set show type to window?
