Default Same slide title for all slides


Hi,

I use Powerpoint 2003 and 2010.
I have several ready made power point files with hundreds of slides each.
The default design template used is blank and in top of it there is a picture with some text for each slide.
Now I need to add titles for each slide.
I do not want to do it manually, so I am looking for a fast way, automatic.
Good thing is that each slide from the same power point file must have the same title.

My question is:
- how do I insert or copy/paste or apply in a "mysterious" way the same slide title to all the slides within the same power point file?

Thanks.

After good hours of searching and short after I asked here, I found next solution in PPT2010:


1) View-Slide Master-Insert Layout. I modified one existing layout by leting only the title placeholder. Then I renamed it. The title placeholder I moved it put of the slide, because I do not need to see any text during slideshow. I only need the slide title to be seen in Outline View.
2) After I closed the Master View, in Normal View I selected all the slides. Then in Home-Slides-Layout I searched and applied my layout design to all (selected) slides. Now my slides have a title placeholder; before were blank slides.
3) I wrote by simple typing the title for first slide.
4) hen I automatic copied the name from first slide to all other slides. Here is more complicated.
5) I found next thread https://www.msofficeforums.com/power...er-fields.html and I created a Macro with the code:

Sub copyTitles()
Dim oshp As Shape
Dim osld As Slide
Dim strtext As String
If ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.HasTitle Then _
strtext = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.Title.TextFram e.TextRange
For Each osld In ActivePresentation.Slides
If osld.Shapes.HasTitle Then osld.Shapes.Title.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = strtext
Next
End Sub

6) Then I added a Custom Button to the Office Ribbon and linked to the Macro above.
7) Each time when I push the button, in each power point file, I have the fast result of copying the title slide from 1st slide to all other slides. Everything is fine now, the problem is solved.

Who needs details about Macro implementation and Custom Button, I can gladly help later.
