    NOTE: I put some terms in quotes in quotes because they might not be the correct term to use, and I don't want helpful people going off in the wrong direction because I used a term that actually means something else.

    That said, I created a "layout" that I want to use on all slides in the presentation. Each page will have the same "header" and "footer". Each page will have unique "content" between the "header" and "footer".

    What I expect to happen is that when I complete one slide and add a new one, I should be able to open a "blank" slide that has that same "layout," but with no "content." Then I add another new slide that has that same "layout," but with no "content." and so on, through 20 or so slides.

    I've tried PP's Template feature and I've tried PP's Master Slide. In each case I created that "layout" that I want to use on all slides in the presentation. However, each time I try to add a new slide PP wants me to use one of PP's pre-determined templates or master slides.

    I could copy-and-paste my basic slide, but there must be a better way. After all, PowerPoint has been around for 15 or so years. Surely in that time someone has come up with a way to do this. I'm sure that the problem is that I don't understand the terminology and therefore don't know how to ask in Microsoft's "help" system.

    Will someone please get me on the right track? All I want to do is to make each page look the same as my original design.
