    I am revising a large PPT 2007 presentation. I am sing notes pages, and I
    have changed the notes master. How do I apply this change to all the slides
    in the presentation without having to do it slide by slide?

    Hi Pat

    Go to View -> Notes Master (not Notes Page - it's on the right hand side of
    the Presentation Views group) and make the changes there - the whole
    presentation should update.

    Hi Lucy,

    Thanks, but I did make the change on the notes master. It does not change
    the notes pages, and then I need to right click on each page, go to notes
    layout, and click on reapply mater. There must be an easier way!

    Hi Pat

    Hmmm. I see that behaviour here if I have already manipulated a notes page -
    that is notes pages I have left alone update with the master but ones I have
    tinkered with don't.

    I've had a good old hunt about and I can't find an 'update all' option
    anywhere. Also, creating a new ppt(x) and re-using the slides doesn't work.

    One of the VBA experts may have an answer for you....

    Aha! I found this on the FAQ:
    Reapply the Notes Master to each Notes Page in a presentation
    http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00760.htm

    If you aren't sure how to use VBA, there is a link at the end of the
    article. I'm not sure it will work in 2007 but it's worth a try (on a copy
    of your presentation just in case).

    Sounds a bit scary. I have bever used VBA. I will give it a try in the
    morning (i am on the other side of the world)

    How is life in Oz? I lived in Sydney for 3 years and LOVED it.

    It's not that scary - honestly. And if you have any problems post the code
    here and one of the VBA-ers will give you a hand I'm sure :)

    Oz is good thanks - certainly beats the weather in the UK (where I'm from).

    I have had the same problem, except that when I reapply master, my slide
    placeholder is deleted, and the changes I made in the master (to the footer)
    do not actually get updated in the notes page.

    So I am stuck updating them all by hand. I would welcome a suggestion on how
    to fix this.

    I am working with ppt files in compatibility mode (because I need to use the
    ppts with web presentation applications that do not yet support office 2007
    file types).
