Is it possible to insert Hyperlinks in selected area in Powerpoint through office js add-in ?
I have tried using the setSelectedDataAsync(data, options, callback).
But i am only able to insert Plain Text through this method.

Office.context.document.setSelectedDataAsync('Hello World!',
function (asyncResult) {
if (asyncResult.status === Office.AsyncResultStatus.Failed) {
console.log(asyncResult.error.message);
}
});

Is there any way to insert a HyperLink in the selected area ?

    PowerPoint hyperlinks can be attached to a shape or to text in a shape. You cannot assign a hyperlink to a blank area.

    They are no Office.js experts here, you'll get better answers from the office-js tag in Stack Overflow.
