5. If you want the date, number, and footer to appear on every slide

If you’re going to give a presentation on a certain date in the future (for
example, at a sales conference or a trade show), type the date that you’ll be
giving the presentation directly into the Fixed text box. You can use the same
technique to postdate presentations that you never really gave but need to

If you want to change the Footer areas for just one slide, click Apply instead

should leave the codes themselves alone.
