The slide master is the framework of your entire presentation. It is a powerful tool for coordinating all the elements of a presentation when you use it fully.
PowerPoint has two main masters that control the look of the presentation: the slide master and the title master. The title master defines the elements only for slides that use the Title Slide AutoLayout--usually used to open the presentation or perhaps at the start of a section. The slide master defines every other type of layout. On these masters, it affects the whole presentation. Working with slide master lets you do less and accomplish more.
