PowerPoint: Can you apply a different Master Slide by “ Copy and paste a slide master from one presentation to another”

I am not too much into form(atting beyond what follows function), so I lifted this straight from the PowerPoint 2007 Help file – is deleting the original master slide a way/the best way to apply the new master slide to all slides? Comments (below) welcome

  • “ Open both the presentation that contains the slide master that you want to copy and the presentation that you will paste the slide master to.
  • In the presentation that contains the slide master that you want to copy, on the View menu, in the Presentation Views group, click Slide Master.
  • In the slide thumbnail (thumbnail: A miniature representation of a picture.) pane, right-click the slide master that you want to copy, and then click Copy.  Notes 
    • In the slide thumbnail pane, the slide master represents the larger slide image, and the associated layouts are positioned beneath it.
    • Many presentations contain more than one slide master, so you may have to scroll to find the one that you want.

    This list of slide layout thumbnails contains one slide master and two layouts.

     

  • On the View tab, in the Window group, click Switch Windows, and then select the presentation that you want to paste the slide master to.
  • In the presentation that you want to paste the slide master to, on the View menu, in the Presentation Views group, click Slide Master.
  • In the slide thumbnail pane, to click the location where you want the slide master to reside, do one of the following:
    • If the destination presentation contains a blank slide master, right-click the blank slide master, and then click Paste.
    • If the destination presentation contains one or more customized slide masters, scroll to the bottom where the last slide layout resides, right-click below it, and then click Paste.
  • To copy and paste additional slide masters, follow steps 1 through 6.
  • On the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View.” (PowerPoint 2007 Help – press F1).
