Oh, No You Don’t!

Friday, April 20th, 2007 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS PowerPoint

Oh, No You Don’t!

Okay, so you used yesterday’s PowerPoint Slide Master tip and put a background graphic in your presentation.

Are you sorry you did that now?

I hope not!

But, do you wish you could have that graphic removed from just a slide or two?

Alright, that’s no problem. You just have to know where to look.

First, go to the slide that needs the graphic from the Slide Master suppressed.

Next, it’s to the Format menu, Background choice.

In the Background window, check the “Omit background graphics from master” choice and click Apply. (If you click Apply to All, it will remove the graphic on all the slides, but at that point, I must wonder what was the point of putting it in the Slide Master in the first place?!)

There you have it. A quick and easy way to let the Slide Master hold up on that graphic once in awhile!
