    Inserting Slides from Another Presentation Removes Slide Numbering & Footer on Slide

    I'm using PowerPoint 2010 and am trying to understand why when I insert slides from another presentation by using Reuse does it delete my slide number and footer on the slide that I inserted and it doesn't conform to the template formatting. The "Keep Source Formatting" box is not checked.

    The slide number and footer were created using the Master slide and work perfectly when insert a new slide layout.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately, it appears that inserted slides don't automatically get slide numbers etc selected, from what I can see on this page: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/o...c-ac5902965792.
    if you paste or insert other existing slides, you may need to do this all over again
    It seems like the only way to do this is to insert all the slides you need, then select slide numbers/footers/date&time again and click 'Apply to All'.
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    If your problem is solved, please go to 'Thread Tools' above your first post and 'Mark this Thread as Solved'.
    If you use commas as your decimal separator (1,23 instead of 1.23) then please replace commas with semi-colons in your formulae.
    You don't need to give me rep if I helped, but a thank-you is nice.

    Aardigspook,

    Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post. Seems unbelievable to me that Mircrosoft hasn't come up with a way to streamline this. Have a great day.
