Problems with Slide Masters
Mar 14, 2022
I have an issue with slide masters that defies my ideas and mathematics.
I have a project with 29 slides. 18 Slides contain the project information and instructions. 1 slide is the Question bank and there are 10 Questions.
When I go into the Slide Master to delete the Old Slide Master titled ‘Themetabs’ it shows there are 22 slides using that master and 20 Slides using the Question Layout. That is a total of 42 slides. I changed all of these to the Clean Master.
When I look at the Clean Master, it shows 28 slides with 10 in the Question Layout and the Question bank makes a total of 29. Perfect.
Why does the project think I am still using the old slide master and question slides? I have painstakingly checked every slide against the Apply layout function to be sure I have them only in the Clean Master.
I have had this issue with other projects but this one shows clearly that the old master still seems to be in the “memory” of the project. Is this a glitch or is there a solution I just don’t know.
I am attaching the file so you can see the issue.
