Powerpoint 2010 - Creating Placeholders for Slide Master layouts

The graphic below shows a PPT text placeholder.  Standard bullets.
What I would like to do is change this standard placeholder into one of my own design.  So that when I click on insert placeholder text, I get MY placeholder, not the PPT default.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no graphic. Could you attach it so I can have a look.
Thanks heaps.
You can do that on the slide master and the individual slide layouts.

Choose View | Slide Master. Format and position the title and body placeholders on the big thumbnail (the slide masters). Those changes will trickle down to the individual layouts (the little thumbnails.) You may have to tweak the font sizes on the 2-content and Comparison layouts.

Now go back to Normal (editing) View and click the bottom of the New Slide button to see the layout gallery. Those layouts are each represented by one of those layouts that inherited those Slide Master changes you just made.

Is that what you are asking?
