Slide numbering (PP 2007)

Post by steveh »

I have searched and read many replies on this and I think I am doing everything right but I just cannot get the slide numbers to appear.

Slide Master

1. Go to Master Layout
2. Select 'Slide Number'
3. Moved # sign to the position required (bottom left)

But when I run the slide show nothing shows

Normal View

Because that didn't work I did the following

1. On slide one on the 'Insert' tab I selected 'Header and Footer' from the text group
2. Checked 'Insert Slide No.'
3. Clicked on 'Apply All'

But still nothing appears, however if I go back into 'Header and Footer' the check mark has disappeared?

Hi Steve,

I have compiled a short how to as I have a lot of this exact issue at work...

See if you can get it fixed by following the attached step-by-step...

The crux of the issue is the following:
Slide Numbers can appear only if the slides have a Slide Number placeholder – if you add Slide Numbers to a slide that has no Slide Number placeholder, then you won’t see any Slide Number!

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

Hi Rudi

Thank you very much for that, there are a few differences in 2007 but using your tutorial I was able to work those out

Cheers :clapping:
