creating a template from scratch

Nov 15, 2012

Hey guys!

I am currently working with a template i created in the master slides. But i seem to be doing something wrong... I modified the question template after i created the questions.

Everytime i choose this layout, the answer gets all screwed, he doesnt recognize the place holders i had in there, i have to realign manually the answers parts and cut/paste the te4xte3 in the new place holders the template adds.

Is there a tutorial on creating / formating templates from scratch? Can't seem to find any...

I have seen this tutorial, thanks!

I had a template before and did this procedure to save it. But requests from my projet manager and content expert led me to change manually some of the slides and now when i try to apply the layout, its screws everything up...

I was wondering if there was another tutorial on the elements of the template, especially question slides since these are the ones that become particularly crooked....

Hi Nathalie,

That sounds sound a bit strange. When you're loading the template into the question slides, is there already a template assigned to it? It sounds like it might be trying to adjust to the settings for a previous template. 

Can you post a screenshot (You can take a screenshot by pressing ALT+Print Screen. Then paste (CTRL+V) into a Word document) or a screencast  here, so I can take a look, please? You can attach files to this message by using the paperclip icon.

Thanks again!

It is yes, it does it mostly with the MC and true/false questions... MR, Sequences or associations, even freeform do fine...

its gonna be hard for me to show you  - im done with the changes in the layout...

i have a second questionnaire to which i need to do apply the same template tomorrow. If the same thing happens, i will send the screencast to show you what i mean... Thanks!
