    Can't get this line out of first slide (PowerPoint 2003)

    I inherited a PowerPoint presentation that is pretty nice. There is one thing I am trying to change though. My boss wants me to remove a line going across the bottom of the first slide. It is set in the Master Slide as such and when I remove it, it obviously removes it from the rest of the slides. Is there a way I can remove it from just the first slide? Thanks!

    By first slide, do you mean the title slide? You can create a separate Title Master.
    Otherwise, you can create multiple masters - see for example PowerPoint for Techies: Multiple Masters.

    Format > Background > Omit background graphics from master > Apply

    I tried that but I have other background information that needs to stay (i.e. page#, company logo). It's just a big blue line that the boss doesn't like for the title slide.

    Then I guess you have to go with Hans' suggestion of using a different master for that one slide.
