    Slide With Six Content Boxes (XP Pro SP2 / PPT 200

    Is there a way to modify the "Title and 4 Content" slide layout so that it has six (6) content boxes and not title (see attachment)? I know how to eliminate the title box. When I replicate the box containing the "add content" icon, all I get is the surrounding text box.

    Thanks for any help,
    Al

    No, but you can use the Insert menu to add extra items (diagrams, ...)

    Thanks, Hans. I'm trying to make a mindless slide layout for a 3R x 2C "add content" slide. I cannot figure out what that "add content" box is. It's not a control box collection and there's no VBA code behind it.

    Regards,

    The predefined slide layouts cannot be modified, nor can you create new ones. The "Click to add content" box is not available for tweaking or duplicating. I know it's disappointing, but that's how it is (as far as I know - I'll be glad if someone can prove me wrong)

    Groan <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>. After all the attempts I made to "find it", I concluded that the "Click to add content" box is embedded / non-modifiable code. Yes, indeed, this is very disappointing, to say the least.

    Many thanks,
    Al
