    Deleting Subtitle in Master

    This should be easy but it is proving to be very frustrating. I am using PowerPoint 2003 to edit a slide deck. In the slide master, I want to delete the subtitle for the title slide so there is just a single title. That is easy to do, just click on it and hit delete. However, it really does not delete it. In the main presentation, if I Reapply to Selected Slide, the slide shows the subtitle area (with a box around it) even though it is not in the master.

    Is there any way to make it completely go away?

    Ronny,

    Did you edit the Master via View, Master, Slide Master?

    2003 doesn't really give you the option of custom layouts as in later versions

    You can get close to what you ask by setting the font size to 1 point and the size to 0.01 x 0.01 and moving the palceholder on the master just off slide.

    Thanks, that is a reasonable work around.
