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.
