    Text from Slide Master doesn't appear in thumnail (2007)

    I'm just beginning to use PP 2007 slide masters and layouts and have what is probably a simple issue.

    I've set up a test presentation and have selected a layout from a .pot file that I saved. The layout I selected from the .pot file has a text box -- simple enough so far.

    Here's the problem: The text box doesn't show in the thumbnail view on the left side nor does it show in the slide show. Any text box that I insert directly into the pptx file shows in both the thumbnail view and the slide show but the text box that is "inherited" from the layout I selected only shows in the normal view (on the right).

    What am I missing here? I'm sure I'll be embarrassed when I hear the solution <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> .

    Thanks, in advance.

    Please disregard this post. I found that by inserting a Text Box, and not a Placeholder, into the master layout, it carried through to all slides to which the layout was applied.

    Sorry!
