Default Problem Inserting Image


I'm working with a PowerPoint deck for a client of mine and the way that the main master content slide is set up is as follows:

Slide Title (top)
Content Block (middle)
Section title (bottom left of slide)

The problem that they are running into when building a presentation is that whenever they try to insert an image (through the program, not dragging and dropping) the image automatically goes into the bottom footer box, not in the main content area where it should.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Do you know what type of placeholder the section title is?

In some versions Pictures automatically go into the first available content placeholder. It's difficult to control which is the first content placeholder. I would remake the layout starting with a duplicate of the usual Title & content and add the new placeholder to that or maybe duplicate a comparison layout and remove one subtitle and one content holder and then reposition and resize.
