Default Insert Text box to multiple slides

Hi,

Is there a quick way to copy paste a Text Box (with text in it) onto multiple slides (eg. selecting them and doing paste)?

If I have a presentation of 30 slides and need to paste a Text Box with text into slides 5 to 10 do I have to copy paste Text Box in each slide one by one (5 to 10) or is there a quicker way?

Thanks,
Nic

You just need to copy once and paste 5 times.

Why doesn't selecting the slides for pasting work anymore? Every web search shows how to do it this way... no other way. It used to work several months ago. I've done it, but PowerPoint 2016 won't paste to multiple slides anymore.

If you mean select multiple slides and then PASTE that has never been possible.

You can move through slides quickly by pressing PageDown > CTRL V > Page Down etc

If you have already copied a shape you can use code to paste it to all of the selected slides.

Code:
Sub paster()
On Error Resume Next
Dim osld As Slide
For Each osld In ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange
ActiveWindow.View.GotoSlide (osld.SlideIndex)
osld.Shapes.Paste
Next
End Sub
