Can you send me a few slides? There should be a way to automate that.

Subject: [Athen] Fixing PowerPoint slides without titles

Hi all,

I have a PowerPoint file that's built from a template that was created from scratch, rather than using one of the built-in templates that comes with PowerPoint. Consequently the large text at the top of each slide, which is tagged as a title in the built-in templates, is not a title at all - it's just text.

Is there a way to change this object in the slide master from "text placeholder" to "title"?

If not I'm going to have to fix each slide individually, which I'd rather not do (it's a very large slideshow, and is one of many slideshows built from this same template).
