Feedback layouts don't inherit changes on master

I make custom masters for feedback a lot but it's perplexing to me that only certain items are inherited on the layouts after I change the master.

First of all, I'm not making anything complicated. Just a box with headline, text, and button. They're more or less like the default but I need to customize their size and position based on my slides.

If I change the master, only the box size/position carries down to the layouts. I have to go in to each layout and remake the same changes.

The feedback layer is always problematic. Even when I get rid of the "caption" format (that shows up in a color for some reason) the text always seems to have a shadow on it when I review the slides. It's problematic to solve that issue and takes a lot of trial and error.

This should be simpler. I am accustomed to PowerPoint masters and so far with Storyline, I'm not satisfied. The slide masters have their own issues as well but at least I can work around those quirks without losing time. But the Feedback masters and the quiz results have really gotten me frustrated.

Any insights?
