Now we all going to talk about how to change or delete a placeholder in Powerpoint 2007. Follow this procedure bellow.

Change a placeholder

  1. On the View tab, in the Presentation Views group, click Slide Master.
  2. On the layout, click the placeholder that you want to change, and then do any of the following:
    • To resize it, point to one of its sizing handles, and when the pointer becomes a two-headed arrow, drag the handle.
    • To reposition it, point to one of its borders, and when the pointer becomes a four-headed arrow, drag the placeholder to a new position.
    • To change the font, size, case, color, or spacing for text within it, select the text, and then on the Home tab, in the Font group, click the options that you want.
    • To group objects such as pictures, shapes, clip art, and charts, select the first object that you want to place in a group, press CTRL, and then click on the other objects that you want to group together. Under Drawing Tools, on the Format tab, in the Arrange group, click Format, and then click Group twice. Notes
      • You can group objects in object placeholders, but not text box placeholders. However, you can add a Text box shape and group that with other objects. To do this, on the Insert tab, in the Shapes group, under Basic Shapes, click Text Box.
      • To ungroup the objects, select the grouped objects, under Drawing Tools, on the Format tab, click Group, and then click Ungroup.
  3. On the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View.
  4. For the placeholder changes to be final, you must reapply the slide layout to the slides that follow the changed slide layout. To reapply the slide layout, in the list of slide thumbnails, click the slide that adheres to the layout that you just changed.
  5. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click Layout, and then click the layout that contains the placeholders that you just changed.

Delete a placeholder

  1. On the View tab, in the Presentation Views group, click Slide Master.
  2. Click the border of the placeholder that you want to delete, and then press DELETE.
  3. On the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View. Note To remove the placeholder from the slide completely, you must reapply the slide layout to the slide.
  4. For the placeholder changes to be final, you must reapply the slide layout to the slide. To reapply the slide layout, in the list of slide thumbnails, click the slide that adheres to the layout that no longer contains the deleted placeholder.
  5. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click Layout, and then click the layout that no longer contains the deleted placeholder.
