Hi Experts,

I was working on a presentation in MS Powerpoint 2010, when suddenly the slide I was working on became an opaque grey slide.  I have not chosen to "hide" the slide.  Further, I cannot seem to find any way to capture the content I was building on the slide.

Can you provide a solution on how I can recover the content of my slide?  And also explain what caused the original slide to become a gray opaque slide with no content?

Thanks

Hi Milind,

Can't provide a screenshot.  The content of the slide just dissapeared and the slide turned completely grey.  I said Opaque Grey because I could not do anything to the slide.  I could not add text boxes or change the layout.  It's almost as thoughthe slide had become corrupted.

Strangely, in the outline view, I can see the text I had on the slide however.  The other thing I tried was doing a select all and deleting everything off the slide.  This works and gives me back a normal slide that I can add text boxes, etc., on to.  However, this comes at the cost of losing my original tables and text that I was building on the slide.

Does reset work?

have you covered the slide with shape or box that is grey, if you right click on the grey and 'move to back' or delete does it help

alternatively if you can select all and copy it to another slide do you see any change
