SUMMARY

When you create a new presentation, the Title Master option is not available until you create a new Slide Master for that presentation. This article describes how to create and modify a title master.

Note Finish working on the slide master before you create or change the title master, because the title master inherits some styles, such as font type and size, from the slide master. Also note that if you make changes directly to the title master, those changes are preserved and are not affected by changes to the slide master.

How to Create a Title Master

To create a title master, follow these steps:
  1. On the View menu, point to Master, and then click Slide Master.
  2. On the Insert menu, click New Title Master.
  3. Make the changes that you want.

    For example, you can insert text, change the fonts, change the color or size of the text, and add a picture or text box. Make sure that you do not delete or add characters in the placeholder text.
  4. On the Master toolbar, click Close.
