    the slide is based on a Slide Master. You need to change the Slide Master to change the column sizes.

    Click the View ribbon and click Slide Master. You will see three slide masters and a sub-layout beneath each master slide. Your layout is the sub slide under the second slide master.

    To resize the outer layers of the boxes, you need to work on the slide master #2. Other elements of the slide are controlled (and can only be changed) in the sub-slide below master #2.

    Select each element on its respective master slide and drag it to the desired size.

    Once you are done, click Close Master View to return to your slide.

    Cheers, teylyn
