I need presentation frequently for my teaching, when I want to make changes presentation wide using master view it is not shown in presentation and I need to do it manually for each slides

Some things seem to work when changing an attribute on the master slide. For example, specifying a different background, is carried out across all slides. The difficulty I have is changing the font. I can change this on the master slide but the new setting isn't carried over to any of the presentation slides. A workaround seems to be to select the text on one of the slides in the actual presentation, then navigate to Format - Styles and Formatting - Right click on the highlighted style and select Modify. Change the Font and/or Font Effects and press OK. The new font should now be displayed on all slides.

Thanks, This is working for fonts, background and slide transition but if you add custom animation it is not working – Kamlesh Feb 9 '12 at 5:40
