Dear All, I have recently been given some presentations and wish to use my own slide master. I have applied my slide master to the presentation and 90% of the slides have come out OK. However, it seems that some slides have been formatted without using the slide master and my slide master does not apply its formatting to them. Is there an easy way I can remove all the 'old' formatting from these slides so that they pick up my master slide? msr P.S. When will the army teach people how to use Powerpoint correctly?
