Convert into placeholders

Post by shreeram.maroo »

Hi,

Is there any way, I can convert the text boxes, titles etc. which are already there in a slide master into placeholders ?

Thanks

Not as far as I know. You'd have to insert new placeholders, and remove the text boxes etc.

As Hans hints on; that is not possible. You will need to reset the slides (or select a desired layout) and then copy the content from the text boxes into the newly created placeholders, then delete the text boxes.

:whisper: After this manual exercise, you need to train the person who set up the presentation to avoid text boxes like the plague!

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