    Slide Layout Default (2002)

    With the older version of PPT, I was able to change the default of new slides to a layout of my choosing. For example, I used PPT to keep field effort photos in a file and by using the layout with only the 'text layout, title only'. Then I would insert the photo to where it covered the complete slide or put the photo as the slide background so it was easy to add marks on the photo without worrying about moving the photo around. When I changed it to where all new slides came up with the same design, it was nice. Now when I insert new slide, it always comes up with the title & bulleted text layout.

    I've tried manipulating the master to no avail and I know all about the photoalbum, but it limits you. Any suggestions?

    Try using the following macro:
    <pre>Sub AddNewTitleOnlySlide()
    Dim CurrSlide As Integer
    Dim CurrView As String
    Dim CurrPres As Presentation

    CurrView = ActiveWindow.ViewType
    ActiveWindow.ViewType = ppViewSlide
    CurrSlide = ActiveWindow.View.Slide.SlideIndex
    CurrSlide = CurrSlide + 1
    ActivePresentation.Slides.Add (CurrSlide), Layout:=ppLayoutTitleOnly
    ActiveWindow.View.GotoSlide (CurrSlide)
    ActiveWindow.ViewType = CurrView

    End Sub
    </pre>

    Thanks. I put it on my tool bar - and more importantly - made shortcut keys for it. Thinking of it that way, I can probably put most of those kind of commands in macros. I really dislike the formatting panes. Before I was able to do basics without touching my mouse. Now it is back and forth, but maybe making some of these actions I commonly do as a macro will help.

    Thanks again.
