I'm working with PowerPoint 2007 in the Slide Master. I want to create a new
placeholder on the Content with Subtitle slide. When I click on insert
placeholder, I insert a 'content/text' placeholder, it appears on the slide.
When I go into the Normal view (and get out of the Slide Master view), and I
got to that slide (Content with Subtitle), the placeholder that I inserted
still has a dotted box around it. How can I get this to disappear? THANK YOU!

THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Here's what I'm working with:
A PowerPoint template that our marketing dept. created. I went to the Slide
Master view, and noticed that on the Content with Subtitle layout slide,
there was grey lettering: SUBTITLE ALL CAPS GOES HERE or something of that
When you look at that slide in the Normal view, the grey letters were 'stuck'
on there. You could not remove them, type over them, or edit them. They were
So, I went back into the Slide Master view and removed them there and
inserted a Placeholder (text).
Let me try your work around!!!
