    Changing Heading on first Page

    I will like to know how to get headings to change on page 2 onwards when changing a heading on page 1. I want all my headings to be the same. I am using Office 2010


    It would be appreciated if someone could kindly assist

    My guess would be to create a separate slide master for use on your second and subsequent slides. Put your heading on that slide master and it should carry through the rest of your presentation. Interested in what others might suggest.

    It sounds like you might want to use the slide footer feature. You can display custom text in the middle placeholder, edit the slide master to move that placeholder to the top of the slide, and format it to look like a slide title. Whatever you enter into the slide footer will appear on every slide. You could also just make a custom text box on the slide master instead of repurposing the footer, but then you'd need to go into the master every time you want to edit the shared title.

    You mentioned wanting to update headings automatically when you change them on slide 1. You could write a macro that loops through every slide and updates the actual slide title placeholder, which has the benefit showing up in the slide outline, but that's probably more trouble than it's worth.
