Was sent a powerpoint template, which I am to fill in certain areas.  Every block on ever slide has the language set to French and I wish it to be English so that powerpoint can run spell check appropriately.  How do I do this quickly so that I don't have to change the setup on every slide?

There's a free macro here which will fix a simple presentation. There's also a commercial AddIn but there's no need to buy this if your presentation is straightforward.
