Hi experts

In PPT my client wants their logo to appear on every slide; however, if they have a slide that has lots of text on it, they want to be able to delete the logo on that particular slide, leaving all other slides as they are with the logo still appearing.

Is there a way to do this, without having to delete it off individual slide layouts/masters, ie only per slide at users discretion. A bit like the footer where you can select it and delete it off the slide.

You could fill the footer placeholder with the logo.  Make the font 1 pt and add a space in the header footer dialog so there's really no text in it.

This may make you think about using a custom placeholder and filling it with the logo. I wouldn't do this, though, because when you add placeholders to the default layouts, they do strange things. Since you need this on all slides, it would be better to stick with the footer placeholder.

To fill the footer placeholder, size and position it appropriately, then right-click and choose Format Shape. In the Fill tab, choose Picture or Texture fill, then From File and navigate to the logo. Then go to Insert Header and Footer, type a space in the footer box and click Apply to All to populate it with a space and force it to show up on all slides.
