       That's great ... but it doesn't work that way for me.

       Forinstance, this last presentation I chose the blue border ... and
I always choose the blank slide [although this refuses to remain the
default], ... then I chose the effects, the timing, ... then there's no
place to choose the font for the text.

       Then I added twice the number of slides I figured I'd need [added 50
this time] ... then clicked on 'apply to all'.

       Then I added text to the first slide - the size of the font here
would be different being the header, [I chose papyrus with red] ...
           then I went on to the next slide ... and added the text ... it
was Ariel with black,
           so I 'selected all' & re-chose the font & color ... ditto for
each subsequent slide; each time, I can return to hit the 'apply to all'
... but the text & color do not remain.

       These details are added for you, Dan, although it works/doesn't work
the same no matter what other styles I've chosen, either initially or as I
add the new slides.

       Andrew, I think you're the only one who understands to what I'm
referring; thanks.

     Could we be more detailed in this thread, please? I don't know what
mean when you ask "So you're able to change the text on all the slides?"
What type of change are you talking about? Are you talking about changing
the font of the text on all the slides?
     You have not even stated what style you have applied to your text.
Nor have you stated what styles you are using in your slides. Nor have you
described what layout you have selected from the Layout section of the Task
Pane. Please give us some details.
     I was using styles in Impress before OOo 2.0. For all layouts which
have a title "box" at the top of the page, LO and AOO apply the Title style
listed in the Presentation styles list. Modifying this style modifies all
the titles in all the slides at the same time. You have a copy of my slide
show. Change one of the styles in the Title style and look at the titles in
all the styles. For example, in the Font Effects tab, change the font
color. This will change the font color for every slide title in the
presentation. What I have described is how Impress has worked for "years."

        So you're able to change the text on all the slides?;
           then mine has a bug in it somewhere ... carried over from OO I
guess  ;-)

        So, all you computer geniuses, what's the solution? - I'm awaiting
your responses now.

  I don't know anything about the inner workings of LO.  I'm actually
just a

beginner with LO and I had never opened Impress until you posted.

The method I described below allows you to change all the slides at the
same time, so you only have to make the change once.  Of course if you
more slides you need to do it again for the new slides.  No, it's not
and yes it would be nice if it worked the way you describe.  Good idea!

        Exactly my point, BUT it has to be done with each slide  ;-)

        It would be nice, if the font was selectable on that initial page
when starting a new file ...
            [would this expand the size of LO even more than it is?; if
I guess, it's better this way, just frustrating at times.]

        I've even added more slides than I would need, in order to see if
the font & color will hold, but it won't  ;-)

  I missed the part where you were using Impress, I thought you were

Writer.  After re-reading your original post and some of the other
responses I think I now understand what you really want.

I also have not been able to figure out a way to do it exactly as you
described, the best I could come up with is to go to the "outline" tab,
select all the text, then change the font.  That way, all of your slides
will have the same font for that one file.
