Hi experts

Does anyone know if you can have the page number in PowerPoint display with a minimum of two digits, eg 01, 02, 03 instead of 1, 2, 3??

I'm using 2007

PP2007 and 2010 don't know how to do this AFAIK.
I used this add-on for a while for slide numbering

Hello,

I'm not in front of 2007 right now and don't recall if you can have more than one Slide Master. If you can, then a workaround could be like this:

Create two identical slide masters
Edit one of them and manually add a 0 in front of the page number in the footer
Assign this slide master to slides 1 - 9
Assign the other slide master to the remaining slides.

cheers, teylyn

It works in 2003, so it should work in 2007, too.

see attached.
