reformat question blank master

Aug 21, 2015

Hi all,

I have a series of question banks that I originally created on a blank slide master. The questions and answer choices automatically filled the entire slide.  Now I've reformatted the masters for each question bank. Is there a way to reformat the question and answer choice placeholders in a master so I don't have to reformat each question bank slide?

I need to clarify... My slide master has no title or content placeholders (I deleted them, now can't add them back).  What I would like to bulk edit for my question bank slides are the question & answer choice placeholders (I have a different Layout for each question bank, based on the slide master.  I've attached a picture showing all 3.

Thanks Leslie.  I've played with that and, yes, I can add placeholders to the Master or Layout and then reapply to a slide but that doesn't reformat any content placement already on the slide. I still have to individually reformat existing items on a slide (the bottom image in my previous attachment). I was hoping I could avoid having to edit every slide in my QBs

In my experience you will now need to reapply the formatting.

There is one thing that may work create a new file with the same slide size, save and then close.

Import the slide from the new file into your project then apply the master to your question slides, I don't hold out much hope it will work but that is what I would try.  I find slide master do not behave as they do in Ppt sometimes
