    Can't move footer after upgrading to 2002 (2002)

    I have heard of users in my organization creating presentations in PP2000 with footers. They upgraded to PP2002 and are now unable to move the footers. They said they were able to move them just fine before they upgraded.

    I tried to create a presentation in PP2000 with a footer and then opened the same file in PP2002 to attempt to move the footer. I could do it without a hitch. Does anyone know a setting that may affect whether the footer can be moved that might be the problem?

    Me, too. I also looked on other PowerPoint boards and in Microsoft's Knowledge base. Can you attach a presentation with the problem? Thanks! --Sam

    I did a little more digging. I admit I was skeptical when I heard about the problem. I figured they probably just didn't know how to do it. Well, apparently I don't either. <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>

    The issue turns out to be with footers applied in View-->Header and Footer. This type of footer I don't think I can move. And I couldn't move it in either 2000 or 2002. I understand that you can move a footer that you apply on the slide master, but is there a way to move footers applied in this location?

    Just use the View | Slide Master and move the Footer Placeholder to whereever you want it. View | Header and Footer just controls the content, the masters still control the placement. --Sam
