Text Formatting in PowerPoint Templates

We recently had a question from one of our members about changing the way our PowerPoint templates formatted the text in placeholders.  It seems that our subscriber was finding herself constantly tweaking the layout of each slide to fit the exact format that she needed.

I thought I'd post a video tutorial about how you can easily modify the Master Slide to a custom format to exactly fit your needs.

This video will show you how to modify the Slide Master in a PowerPoint Template to control the text on every new slide you add.  In this way you can make the change one time and have it apply to every slide in your presentation.

I've written more about using the slide master in our PowerPoint templates here:
