Hello,

1. When i open powerpoint i would like to have the default page setup to be 11 x 17 inches and have no "Click to add title" and "Click to add subtitle"  text there

2. I would like to have a default macro added to all (new/saved/etc..) projects. Now i have to open up a saved project to run a default macro.

Create your presentation with the size you want, and the macro added.
File / Save as / PowerPoint Presentation.
Select Save As Type - PowerPoint Macro Enabled Presentation. *.pptm
Save it in C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
(this is the folder for XP, but whatever is appropriate for your operating system).
It should default to the appropriate Template folder, so go ahead and use that.
The next time you open PowerPoint, the size and macro will be already there.
