Use slide master to change states of question choices

Mar 26, 2021

Is there a way to edit states for question choices in a slide master layout?

For example: On a multiple choice question, edit the states for the answer choices, so that those states are carried to other question slides based on that layout.

It's easy enough to do this once a slide is created, but also time consuming to have to do it for every slide, and kinda  violates the purpose of using master slides and layouts. Any insight on this will be appreciated.

Hi, John,

I don't know of any way to adjust the Master states for question responses. 

Here's my suggestion:

  • Create a new scene (not linked to any other scene). I typically call mine Storage.
  • In the Storage scene, create 1 set up question slide for each type of question you'll be using. 
  • Adjust the question-response states as desired in those slides.
  • Copy and paste a set up question wherever you need a real question slide in the course. Add the real content.
  • When the course is finalized, you can delete the Storage scene. Or save it for use during future edits (though you could also copy a "real" question slide instead). 

Admittedly, that's not as nice as it would be to adjust those states in a Master. But it is better than editing the states on every question slide.
