I am revising a large PPT 2007 presentation. I am sing notes pages, and I

have changed the notes master. How do I apply this change to all the slides

in the presentation without having to do it slide by slide?

    • Hi Pat

      Go to View -> Notes Master (not Notes Page - it's on the right hand side of

      the Presentation Views group) and make the changes there - the whole

      presentation should update.

    • Hi Lucy,

      Thanks, but I did make the change on the notes master. It does not change

      the notes pages, and then I need to right click on each page, go to notes

      layout, and click on reapply mater. There must be an easier way!

    • Hi Pat

      Hmmm. I see that behaviour here if I have already manipulated a notes page -

      that is notes pages I have left alone update with the master but ones I have

      tinkered with don't.

      I've had a good old hunt about and I can't find an 'update all' option

      anywhere. Also, creating a new ppt(x) and re-using the slides doesn't work.

      One of the VBA experts may have an answer for you...

      Aha! I found this on the FAQ:

      Reapply the Notes Master to each Notes Page in a presentation

      http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00760.htm

      If you aren't sure how to use VBA, there is a link at the end of the

      article. I'm not sure it will work in 2007 but it's worth a try (on a copy

      of your presentation just in case).

    • Sounds a bit scary. I have bever used VBA. I will give it a try in the

      morning (i am on the other side of the world)

      How is life in Oz? I lived in Sydney for 3 years and LOVED it.

    • It's not that scary - honestly. And if you have any problems post the code

      here and one of the VBA-ers will give you a hand I'm sure :-)

      Oz is good thanks - certainly beats the weather in the UK (where I'm from).

    • I have had the same problem, except that when I reapply master, my slide

      placeholder is deleted, and the changes I made in the master (to the footer)

      do not actually get updated in the notes page.

      So I am stuck updating them all by hand. I would welcome a suggestion on how

      to fix this.

      I am working with ppt files in compatibility mode (because I need to use the

      ppts with web presentation applications that do not yet support office 2007

      file types).
