I understand now Alessandro's situation - at least I assume.

I also had the same problem when I created my own template - and still have for next templates I need to make. I wanted to have a title master and 1 slide master.

The master view allows currently only 1 master layout (title, content). Using this I could create my own kind of title master, however it is not very good and rather cumbersome to make.

Therefore I also would appreciate if master slides could have at least a proper title slide layout. From my point of view this would be sufficient. However, a few more to mach Alessandro would be better and easier to work with.

If Dan could take such and enhancement request to the dev-team I appreciate this a lot..

Hello Dan,
    thank you for your attention.
I'll try to indicate the layout I want to apply with a (row,column) index, because i don't know the actual layouts' names.
I suppose the layouts on the task pane are organized in two columns and many rows.
This is what i'm trying to obtain:

slide master 1 (i.e. title master) = layout(3,2) with vertically resized text box (i.e. the title), 0 fields, 4 text boxes with fixed text around the title (1 above and 3 below).
slide master 2 (i.e. summary) = default layout(2,1)
silde master 3 (i.e. 2-columns image and text) = layout(4,1) with horizontally resized right box to half of the slide width silde master 4 (i.e. standard text master) = layout(1,2) with left-aligned text and no bulleted lists.

You said:
But what you can do is to use the tools in the toolbars to create layouts that match the default layouts. It takes more time than just clicking one of the default layouts.
My problem is the text inside will be fixed, while i'd want to be able to apply a template to a "style-empty" (white) presentation. In other words, suppose to create a presentation with default layouts but with no theme: it is substantially white with some images and unformatted text. Then, my wish is to be able to apply to every "type" of slide the corresponding slide template (i.e. master slide or slide master or master page).
I don't understand how to achieve this with default tools.
Could you be more explicit, please?

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

Please tell me what you want to have in each of the 4 slide masters you listed. This might help me to make some suggestions later in the form of a short presentation. Specifically, I'm interested in the layout for each master slide. Also, what default layouts do you want to apply to each of these master slides? There can be some confusion about slide masters. There are three terms that are used interchangeable: slide master, master side, and master page. When modifying a master slide, you can't directly apply default layouts to it. (You have already discovered this.) But what you can do is to use the tools in the toolbars to create layouts that match the default layouts. It takes more time than just clicking one of the default layouts.
