Default Custom Slide Master - unable to edit subheadings

Hello,



I created my custom slide master with own fonts. In slide master view I created several headings. However, once I close the master view and want to edit the text on my presentation, I am only able to edit the first heading and the remaining five headings are fixed.

I attach my presentation for a better clarity of the problem.

Does anyone encountered the same issue and has a suggestion what to do?

Thank you

It looks like you just copy pasted or duplicated the title placeholder. This will not work as it just creates non editable textboxes.

You need to use the insert Placeholder button to add and modify new placeholdrs

Thanks for your quick reply. I tried to enter a placeholder - text on my Master Slide. However, once I close Master Slide view, I don't even see my placeholder text. I attach the power point with the latest change. What did I do wrong?

The slide is still displaying the old layout. Press RESET in the Home Tab
