When viewing a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in Outline view, some or all ofthe slide titles and subheadings may not appear and you may not be able topromote or collapse them. In addition, changes you make to the text layouts onthe Slide Title Master and subheadings are not reflected on these slides.
The Slide Master or Outline view does not control text boxes that are drawn onblank slides. The slides that do not appear in Outline view were not chosen fromthe Slide Auto Layout options. For the Slide Master to control the other slides,and for the slide titles to appear in Outline view, the slide must follow anAuto Layout option.
Use the Slide Auto Layouts, or apply a Slide Layout to an existing slide.To apply an Auto Layout, follow these steps:
On the Format menu, click Slide Layout.
Select the text in a text box and click Cut on the Edit menu.
Click in an Auto Layout box and click Paste on the Edit menu.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each text box.
You can move or resize the Auto Layout boxes on the slide withoutbreaking the link to the Master slide and outline.
This feature is under review and will be considered for update in afuture release.
