Change Slide Master - Powerpoint Import?

Feb 26, 2013

What is the proper method to change the Slide Master after importing a Powerpoint presentation.   I tried to copy the Slide Master from another scene / project (dark grey w/logo) and delete the default Powerpoint Slide Master (white background), it won't delete.  Changing the layout does not work, my logo vanishes (right, normal view).

Any help would be greatly appreciated or where to find the help?

Hi Kevin,

I'm not sure if this will help, but you might want to check out a post made by Steve Flowers:

Importing a PowerPoint Template To Be A Storyline Template

Something else that might help is importing the slides into a new Storyline file. You should be able to import your current slides into a new, blank Storyline course and then modify the Master. Take a look at the tutorial below for information on importing slides:

Hi Kendra!

I'm not sure that standard PPT templates work the same in Storyline. You would need to make sure that you are creating and saving a Storyline template as explained in this documentation.

If you have a slide that you imported from PowerPoint that has everything on it you want on your new layout, Select and copy everything on the slide.  Then go to Master view, right click on a thumbnail and choose Insert layout. Click on the new layout, and paste.  That will make a new layout with everything on it that the slide had.
