Default Change text across multiple slides


I have a template I have built that uses text boxes to identify up to 15 subsections of the presentation. These are mirrored across multiple slides so every time I edit the template I have to edit each text box on each slide (which minimally is 225 text boxes to edit) so I am looking for an easier way. I'd like to be able to change it on the title page and have it ripple across each subsequent slide. The position of the text boxes changes from slide to slide which is why I can't use the masterslide as a solution (or maybe I can and just don't know how).
Any help would be appreciated.

Find and Replace would be your first option.

If that isn't an option, perhaps a macro could do the task but I would need to first understand why a search and replace would not be suitable.

Such a simple solution, I never thought about that, thank you!
