To avoid having to select a slide master every time you open PowerPoint® you are able to set a master as a “Default Master”.
In order to do so please open PowerPoint®, choose a master template in the selection window and click on “Default Master”. A presentation with the selected template will now open automatically when you launch PowerPoint®.
Should you later want to set a different master as a Default Template or to revert the Default Template please click on “New” in the empower® ribbon. You can change all required settings in the selection window via the button labelled “Default Master”.
