In this article we will show you step-by-step how to apply a PowerPoint slide master. A PowerPoint slide master allows you to apply a predefined design to all slides of a presentation. It can be designed for each presentation individually and can also be exported into other presentations so you can ensure a consistent design across all your presentations.
To apply a PowerPoint slide master, you must of course first create a slide master. We explain how to do that in this article. After you have created your slide master, it is automatically applied to the current presentation. However, the slide master contains not only the master slide itself, but also various layouts that you can define. If you edit a layout in the master, it automatically adjusts any slides where that layout has been applied. If you add new layouts, you have the option to apply them to existing slides. We will show you how in 2 simple steps:
Now that you know how to apply a slide master to an existing presentation, we will show you how to transfer that master to another slide. This is a simple process:
Now you know how to apply a slide master and how to transfer a slide master. Both processes take just a few steps.
Especially in large projects, manually copying slide masters can still lead to problems: old versions remain in circulation and the current version of the slide master is not necessarily applied to existing presentations. That leads to an inconsistent appearance to the outside world, looks unprofessional, and makes it difficult to enforce a corporate identity.
