I'm wondering if PP has an equivalent to the Autotext feature in Word. Specifically, I want to be able to insert the same textbox containing a checkmark (Wingding 12) symbol, over & over. Perhaps there is a method or macro that can emulate the feature. Ideally, I'd like to be able to do it from a right-click of the mouse at any location on a slide. Any suggestions?

I'm also wanting to set default Page Setup and Font settings for a .pot template I'm making. WRT the font, is this a simple matter of checking the "default for new objects" box?
