I asked this on 1/4/10, and I was wondering if someone could help out? Please. And thank you! In PPT 2007, how can I set a default so that choosing "New Slide" will always be a specific master/specific layout. Or, what is PPT's logic in choosing what layout gets applied to the New Slide command? I have a master I have developed and every time I choose New Slide, I get the 2 column layout, which is maddening because I most frequently use the single column layout. Thanks!
