Master slides being evil

Hello all,

I'm pulling what little hair I have left out trying to figure out what is happening here.

I have a couple of master slide layouts, when I use them the first time they work perfectly, but if I switch from one layout to another it starts changing the size of my answer box to the point where it is off the slide.

I've attached a picture and the source file.

Question masters want to paint in the stem and choices at full-width. This is a pain. I like to layout my questions the same way you've illustrated above with the stem / scene on the left and the choices on the right.

I end up creating a slide for each question type with my layout then copying and pasting the slide rather than applying the layout. Whenever a layout is applied, all kinds of evil stuff happens to my question slides. Using the copy and paste slide method, everything stays cucumber cool.

I normally build a "Master" question slide and then duplicate it rather than rely on Question Masters
