Adding Placeholders to the Master Slides

The power of Master Slides goes way beyond defining common backgrounds and objects. By adding Placeholder objects, you can predefine the location and styling of future objects (such as Images, Text Captions, Smart Shapes, and so on). In this exercise, you will add a slide title placeholder to the Content Master Slide created in the previous section:

  1. In the Master Slide panel, select the Content Master Slide.
  2. Use the Insert | Placeholder Object | Title menu item to add a Title Placeholder on the Master Slide.
  3. Move and resize the Placeholder object so it fits along the top edge of the content background image.
  4. With the Title Placeholder selected, look at the Style tab of the Properties inspector.
