Default Text box which populates another text box on another slide

Hi,
Is there a way to duplicate the text input in a text box on one slide and get that same text appearing across other text boxes within the same PowerPoint while editing?
Thanks,


MrH.

The short answer is no simple way. It is possible to write code to do this but if you want it to work in edit view it would be a lot of code.

Are you aware of Slide Masters? This is the feature normally used to repeat the same content across multiple slides.

If your slide masters included a text box such as a Footer then you could edit the text in all footers without visiting the Master Pages themselves.

Hi,
There is a free addin called "Heron PowerPoint Addin" that (among other things) does pretty much what you are asking for. It has a feature called "dynamic links" that allows you to put a series of shapes on one slide and then have them duplicated on other slides. With a click any updates on any of the slides will cascade through all relevant slides. You will find the instructions for it a few moments into the following clip on YouTube: Free PowerPoint Add-in to boost everyday productivity - YouTube
Hope it helps!
