Restoring Lost Placeholders
Restoring Lost Placeholders
If you’ve played around with your Masters too much, you may inadvertently
delete a layout placeholder that you wish you could get back. For example,
suppose that you delete the footer placeholder from a Master and now you
want it back. No problem! Just follow these steps:
1. Switch to Slide Master View.
2. Call up the Master with the missing placeholder.
3. In the Slide Master tab on the Ribbon, click the Master Layout button
(in the Master Layout group).
This step calls up the Master Layout dialog box, as shown in Figure 10-8.
Figure 10-8: The Master Layout dialog box.
The Master Layout dialog box is one of the strangest dialog boxes you
encounter. If you summon it for a Master that still has all its
placeholders, all the check boxes on the Master Layout dialog box are grayed out.
So, all you can do is look at the controls, grunt, scratch your head, and
then click OK to dismiss the seemingly useless dialog box. However,
if you have deleted one or more placeholders, the check boxes for the
missing placeholders are available.
4. Select the check boxes for the placeholders that you want to restore.
5. Click OK.
The missing placeholders reappear.
Note that the preceding procedure works only for actual masters, not for
individual layouts. If you delete a placeholder from a layout, you must
re-create it by using the Insert Placeholder command as described in the
section “Adding new layouts,” earlier in this chapter.
