Thank you very much for your attention.
I'm sorry but I think I was not been clear in my help request.
The problem is this:

I can't apply a layout (not style) to a master slide.
The default layout for master slides has only two text objects, one for title and one for a bulleted list. I want to apply a predefined style to have less or more text/graphics objects, resize or move them, and finally create one master slide per "type" on my template. Then the idea is to apply the correct master on the presentation, according to the templated defined before.

I didn't find any reference to this kind of works on the impress manual, maybe i've not understood where i can find the way of proceed in the "working with slide masters" section. can you give me some start point?

Thank you in advance.

Hello all,
    I'm trying to create a template which has 4 slide master:

1) a title master
2) a summary master
3) a two-columns image and text master
4) a standard text master.

To design the template, I tried to add 4 slide masters each with a custom layout. The problem is that it seems I can't apply the default layouts to the slide masters. The only one which is accepted is the one with a title header and a text area with bullets list.

Can you help me to define a template containing a full set of masters for every kind of slide i'm going to present?
Thank you in advance

I know this fits into the 'Read the Manual', but have you read the Impress Guide. I'm sure it discusses things like this. Did you use View -> Master -> Slide Master to create your master slides? If so, did you have the Styles and Formatting window open to make changes in the master slides? This has two lists of styles: Graphics and Presentation. I have been able to make a wide variety of changes in master slides using them.


Additionally to the hint by Dan, you need to select always which master slide you want to use for a presentation slide. Open Tasks pane and in "Used in This Presentation" you find all the master slides you created and saved in your template. Thus for new presentation slide click at the required master slide and if needed also at the required Layout. Pretty easy and straight forward.
