4 Steps to Save Slide Masters in Articulate Storyline and PowerPoint

Do you know that you can reduce the time taken to develop online courses, considerably, using the Slide Master? Once you create a layout, you can use it as many times as you want, for multiple eLearning courses.

What if you don’t have the source file?

Don’t worry. Articulate Storyline provides us with an option to save our custom Slide Masters, and you need not develop the same layout from scratch. Let us see how we can save Slide Masters in Articulate Storyline and PowerPoint.

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Click the ‘Design’ tab


Step 2: Click the drop down arrow


Step 3: Select the ‘Save current Theme’ option


Step 4: A window with default location (where default themes are saved) will open. Now, type the preferred name of the layout and click the ‘Save’ button. This will save your current layout with .athm extension (with Office Theme for PowerPoint).

Note: Make sure to apply a blank layout before applying a custom slide master to avoid overlapping of layouts.
