Default One text box turned into many when a 2007 file was opened in 2013 - any ideas?

Hello all,

I recently got a new PC and loaded Office 2013. When I opened an existing PP presentation from my files (some are quite old, but have been revised in 2007 version), I discovered a strange issue. On a slide that once had say 2-3 text boxes (1 for the title and 1-2 for bullet-ed text), I find now that the slide is broken up into many text boxes, such as separate boxes for bullet points, every bullet point line separate, etc. So there might now be 20+ text boxes on one slide where there used to be 2-3.

You can imagine how hard something like this is to edit (unless you're willing to cut and paste each slide - but one of my presentations has over 200 slides and I can't imagine having the patience to do it this way!!!)!

Anyone seen this or have any ideas how I might remedy it?



I searched online and at this site but couldn't find anything specifically describing this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help...

It sounds like a Slide Master issue to me. You may have already checked that but if not look at that first. If it is a non recurring issue and you just need to get a 200 Plus slide presentation converted over Im sure we could help you write a script that would do just that.

Not sure exactly what you mean by "Slide Master issue" - can you expand?
