You can add a new Slide Master to your presentation-- you can also duplicate the existing Slide Master. Youcan then format it to change its look by applying aBackground Style, add acustom background, addnew Slide Layouts, etc. But why would you do allthese tasks in the first place? There needs to be a compelling reason to do so.

IPhone 5, Mac OS X (10.7.4), home sharing Posted on Oct 17, 2017 6:02 PM Reply I have this question too (565) I have this question too Me too (565) Me too. Welcome to the crash course on how to use Mac Operating System (commonly referred to as Mac OS or Macos ). If you have recently switched from Windows to Mac OS X on an Apple Macbook or iMac, the differences between the two operating systems might seem confusing, frustrating and even a bit overwhelming at first.

This reason leads us to the next logical step -- that is to apply the new Slide Master to selected slides in yourpresentation. Follow these steps to learn more:

  1. Launch PowerPoint and open a presentation which has multiple Slide Masters. To find out whether your presentationhas multiple masters, access the Home tab of theRibbon, and click the Layout button. This brings upthe Layout drop-down gallery you see in Figure 1, below. Notice that now there are twoSlide Masters within the Layout drop-down gallery (names of both the Slide Masters are highlighted inred within Figure 1, below).

  2. Figure 1: The Layout gallery confirms presence of multiple Slide Masters
  3. If you made no changes, all slides in your presentation will be based on one of the Slide Masters -- typically, thefirst one, as you can see in Figure 2, below. To apply another Slide Master to one or more slides,first access the Slide Sorterview (see Figure 2 again). Now, select the slide(s) to which you want to apply the alternate Slide Master. InFigure 2 you can see that the first slide is selected.

  4. Figure 2: Slide selected within Slide Sorter view
  5. Tip: To select multiple slides, hold down the Command key and click each slide that youwant to select.
  6. Next, access the Home tab of the Ribbon, and click the Layout button -- to bring up a drop-down gallery, as shown in Figure 3. Note that the selected slide has aspecific layout applied -- the Layout gallery shows that the Blank layout is activewhich is indicated by the orange highlight around it. So, while making the slide to follow the other Slide Master, makesure that you select the same Blank layout (highlighted in red within Figure 3).

  7. Figure 3: Change the Slide Layout within the Layout drop-down gallery
  8. Warning: This can be a huge concern if you are selecting multiple slides at one go -- all these slides mayhave different layouts applied. So be careful at this step to ensure that you don't inadvertently change layouts while applying a newSlide Master.
  9. Click on the appropriate layout to apply it to the selected layout. Figure 4 shows the selectedslide with the changed Slide Master.

  10. Figure 4: Slide Master changed for the selected slide
  11. In the same way, change the Slide Master for any other slides.
  12. When done, get back to Normal Viewby clicking the Normal View button (highlighted in red within Figure 4) on theStatus Bar.
  13. Save your presentation often.

A master's degree by coursework requires a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual dependence, and a research project culminating in the acceptance of a dissertation of limited scope. The curriculum generally comprises subjects where you are required to write examinations, and submit a research proposal module and a short dissertation. In most cases, you need to pass at least two modules before you may register for the research proposal module. You will only be able to register for the short dissertation if you comply with the requirements of the research proposal module.
