Templates

In PowerPoint you can create your own Design Templates which will add to the list of pre-installed PowerPoint Design Templates. A Design Template is basically just a normal PowerPoint presentation where you have set up the Title Master and Slide Master to format your presentation in a certain way.  To save a presentation as a Design Template, click on the File drop-down menu and choose Save As. In the Save As Type box at the bottom of the window choose Design Template and enter a suitable name for your template in the File name box.  

When you have done this you can open another presentation and click on the Format drop-down menu and then Design Template to apply a Design Template.  The presentation you saved as a Design Template will now be available.  You can also apply a Design Template by clicking on the Common Tasks button on the Formatting Toolbar and choosing Apply Design Template from the list that appears. 

If components of your template presentation do not apply to your new presentation it is possibly because you did not apply the changes to the Title Master and Slide Master when creating the template.
