A shadow falls....

Here's a question I hope I can get some help with...

How can I change the defaults for captions? Every new project they come up in blue, and the text is white, with a shadow... I want the caption to be white, a different font, and with no shadow. I can tweak most of this in the 'Format Shape' options, and set as a default shape, but the font won't lose the shadow, so I end up copying one shape into all the slides I want it in, and editing it.

How can I set up a default 'caption' shape to go across projects, in the style I prefer?

Hi there, Paul.  The caption boxes are set to have shadowed text by default, and there isn't a way to change that setting across the board.  It sounds like you use captions a lot and that it would make your life easier to be able to eliminate shadows in your default formatting.
