MS PowerPoint - Font size changes not saved

I am having problems saving the font sizes in a number of MS PowerPoint 2007 files.

I am resizing to fit some text to the screen size and find that no matter how many times/ways that I save the file, that the changes are not saved.

Any ideas to solve this frustrating dilemma. I am currently having to open the file and then make the changes again - each time I use the file for a presentation.

Very annoying.

Thanks

Hello,

try this setting (this is for 2010, but should be similar for 2007): Office Globe > PowerPoint Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options button > AutoFormat As You Type tab > untick "AutoFit body text to placeholder" and "AutoFit title text to placeholder"

cheers, teylyn
