  • 2. Where can I get a template that looks like a storybook?
    I'm making a slide show for my sisters wedding and I want it to look like you are reading a fairy tale book. I was looking for a template that looks like a book where the first page is the cover of the book and as you move to the next slide it appears you are turning the page to begin reading the story. Is there anywhere I can get this template made for me or is it impossible?!

How do I set what slides use a particular slide master.  When I am in Master
view and I roll the mouse over the slide master is specifies "used by slides
1-23."  How can I edit this range?

This is more of a reporting feature than an adjustable one.

In PowerPoint 2002, to change the Master that a slide or slides will use:
1) Select the slide(s) from the slide sorter, or slide miniatures pane (in
normal view)
2) In the Task pane select the design temples pane
3) Click on the pulldown arrow next to the design template you want to use
for this slide(s)
4) Select 'Apply to selected slides'

Now if you go back to the Master slide view, you'll see the reporting has

1.Master slide is unique to each slide - I want master to affect all slides

I have been supplied with a 40 slide presentation. From what I have read I should be able to change say the font on the slide master and see this carry through to all slides. It does not. It only affects the slide I was working on. Why is the slide master not affecting all slides? I have opened the file in Powerpoint 2004 too and the same thing happens. Help - I am desperate.

2.Slide Master 2003 > Slide Master 2007

How is it possible to edit a slide master created in Power Point 2003 using 
Power Point 2007? I am not able to edit (cut/copy/paste) in the old slide 
master anymore.

3.Change slide to Title Master from Slide Master

I know...this HAS to be easy...I'm just having "one of those days"...

I have a small presentation and for some reason, every slide has taken on 
the "slide master" layout.  All I want to do is change slide #1 to the TITLE 
Master layout and leave all the other slides on the SLIDE Master layout.

Why can't I figure this out???

Thanks for your help.

4.Link slide layout master to Top slide master 2007

Okay, so I change the title and content master footer to the color red
then I changed it back to black and went to the top slide master and changed 
the footer text to red (to affect all the slides) and it affected all but the 
title and content slide...
How do I relink the title and content master to be controled by the top 
master instead of taking precidence over it..


5.footers, slide master, slides, viewing footer text on slides

Version: 2008

Processor: Intel

Finally discovered what controls the showing footer on the slides. I could not find documentation in any help files, but finally stumbled on it by process of elimination. To get the date, footer or page number to show up on the slides, you have to View: Header and Footer, and check boxes for each field. Also if you want to have a better view of footer text, view and edit it in the View: slide master view, rather than the header and footer box, which has a tiny text window.
