How to get "Autofit text to Placeholder" to synchronize font size between text boxes?

Hi, at work we have tailored templates for Powerpoint... However, there is something wrong with it and I cannot figure out how to solve it...

I create a new presentation in Powerpoint 2010 without using the template, I change the layout to "Two Content" and I write text in the left frame until it overflows the frame.
The standard behaviour is set to "Autofit text to Placeholder" and when the font size is reduced, I can see that the right frame follows, i.e. the font size is synchronized between the frames.

However, in our own templates, this synchronization has been removed (or never added). Does anyone know how to fix this?

Regards, Tobbe G

AFAIK that facilty is not available to 'custom' layouts. Maybe you could duplicate the two content and adjust the placeholder format but I think that's the only way.

That's what I was going to suggest, JSRWilson. The user might have better luck copying the two content layout from a new, blank presentation into their custom template and then adjusting from there.

There might be something in the XML that will fix this, too -- some kind of override or something. I might have a look.
