Brian,

I licensed a production copy, which I downloaded.  As soon as I modified a feedback master the layers on my regular slides reflected this master.  Here's the link to the screenr I created to show the problem.  Let me know if you need anything else.  https://player.vimeo.com/video/204931425

Hi Deb,

Can you send me a version with your quiz questions so that I can replicate exactly what you're doing?  When you upload the file via the previous link, put the following in the subject line so that it doesn't create a new case:

Case # 00277686: slide layouts for layers problem (FILE UPLOAD) [ref:_00D30Txo._50040JwuyO:ref]

Deb,

You might have noticed , base layers use Slide Masters all secondary layers or new layers created above the base slide layer use the default Blank Feedback Master. So if the you modify the Blank Feedback Master, this will apply to all slide layers using this layout. To prevent this from happening, you should do the following.

1. Select the View Tab -> Feedback Master button.

2. Right-click the Blank layout (typically the bottom layout in the thumbnail list), and select Duplicate Layout.

3. Modify the duplicated layout to match your design requirements.

In your case, you should then deleted all of the elements you added to the  original or default blank feedback master layout.

Please note, it's by design that the secondary slide layers or new layers created above the base slide layer will always be treated as a feedback layer. These layers default to the Blank Feedback layouts when created.

I hope this helps!

Deb,

Just to clarify, not all of the slide layers use the Feedback Master, only new layers created above the default base layer (bottom layer). The base layer will use the default Slide Master. This can be seen by doing the following:

1. Selecting a base slide layer then the Home Tab --> Layout

- Only the Slide Master Layouts are available in the list

2. Selecting a layer above the base slide layer then the Home Tab --> Layout

- Only the Feedback Master Layouts are available in the list

I hope this helps!
