Delete logo embedded in PPT presentation

Post by jmt356 »

Is it possible to delete text or a logo that is embedded in the Master View / Slide Master of a PPT presentation? I have gone into Master View, which lets me edit Master title styles and Master subtitle styles, but it does not appear possible to delete the logo that shows up on the bottom of every slide in the PPT presentation.
Regards,

The logo should be in one of the master slides.

In Slide Master view, there appear to be hundreds of slides in the left. Most of them have the logo in the footer. I cannot select the logo in most of the slides. There are a few where it can be selected and deleted. When I do that, it deletes the logo in some but not all of the slides. Do I need to go into each of the Master Slides and attempt to delete the logo? Is there not a more efficient way to do it?

Slide masters are a hierarchy. Dotted lines in the navigation pane show the relationships.
"Children" inherit settings (such as a logo) from their "parent", so you have to look for the parent.
The one at the very top is the ancestor of them all.

There are so many parents in Slide Master! I have deleted logos from around 20 parents and am not even 1/3 through! Do I have to scroll through all of the parents to delete all of the logos? Is there a way to display only parents in the left column so I can quickly navigate to each one and delete the logos? Is there another shortcut I can use?

Not that I know of. Why does that presentation have so many parent master slides?

Perhaps it was created by combining several presentations from different templates?
