Powerpoint page numbers not updating

This isn’t an example of good presentation design, mind you, but it’s great for illustrating the point. Now, slides using that slide master will display slide numbers.

I found 3 reasons that page numbers might not appear. To add a slide number box, go into the slide master, and click the master slide (the top thumbnail in the left -hand panel). Here are some possible solutions for this situation: Note: The image could be on the slide master!

Master slides are special slides that allow you to format basic information and apply it to every slide in a presentation.

By using the master slides, you can add consistency to a presentation, making it easier to follow and understand.

Masters let you format the title, background, color, date, time, and slide number. The controls formatting only for the title slide(s).

To create a slide master or title master, refer to Working with a Slide Master.

In this case, the slide’s master has a dark background, but I had changed the background for the individual slide.

In this example, the TOC entries are all in red and there’s a change bar to the right of the TOC. To fix it, turn off Track Changes (Review tab), then update the TOC again (see below for how). Super easy with an immediate reduction in stress related to things going wrong with your document just before your deadline ;-) The second issue relates to why the new tables/figures, sections etc.

that you’ve added to the document aren’t appearing in the TOC/LOT/LOF, or why your changes or deletions aren’t reflected in the TOC/LOT/LOF.

Typically, the reason is that you’ve forgotten to update the TOC/LOT/LOF – these lists don’t update automatically.

Dealing with the table/figure Track Changes by accepting/rejecting them usually sorts this out.

After accepting/rejecting the change, update the LOT/LOF and all should be well again. I’m not sure what causes this, but turning off Track Changes and updating the TOC/LOT/LOF should fix it.
