Customer Question

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to change the footer in my PowerPoint 2010 document. The document originated from PPT 2003. If I go into VIEW, and SLIDE MASTER, I can see the footer, but I can't activate or change it.

Steve Herrod :

Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue

Steve Herrod :

when you have the presentation loaded up in Powerpoint 2010

Steve Herrod :

If you click on the Insert tab at the top and the Header & Footer button does this show the Footer as being selected or changeable at all?

Steve Herrod :

Also, if you are able to upload the file to me via Wikisend I can try and find out exactly what is happening

Steve Herrod :

If you go to wikisend.com

Steve Herrod :

and choose Upload file

Steve Herrod :

select the Powerpoint file and it will give you a link/file ID I can use to download the file

Steve Herrod :

Cheers

Customer :

Steve,

Would appreciate your help. Going to Insert tab did nothing. The current footer in the document needs to be changed to read "Fall 2011 ~ OPT-1099"

Here is the link:

I tried what Steve told me to do... http://wikisend.com/download/303220/1099 TF LifeCycle Tracker FinalReport 0312 (OMRC).pptx The footer in this document needs to be changed to read "Fall 2011 ~ OPT-1099"

Steve Herrod :

Thanks - I will get that document and take a look now

Steve Herrod :

ok - hopefully this is correct now

Steve Herrod :

There were a couple of Slide Masters

Steve Herrod :

When checking Slide Master 1 it wasn't possible to edit the Footer

Steve Herrod :

but going to Insert-->Header & Footer in Slide Master 1 view allowed me to put it in

Steve Herrod :

this wouldn't work for Slide Master 2 though - that did allow a manual edit of the footer

Steve Herrod :

Hopefully it's good

Steve Herrod :

If the link doesn't work just go to wikisend.com, choose Download and enter 521936 as the File ID

Steve Herrod :

Cheers
