Description Florian 2018-11-14 12:36:13 UTC
I use LibreOffice at work, but I cannot create a OTP-Version of our corporate PowerPoint template. The reason is because we have a master slide for chapters, which consists of a title, a subtitle and a chapter number:


In PowerPoint, all 3 items are editable. However, there is no way to add a third area (for the big chapter number). It doesn't need to be an auto layout area. Just being able to pre-define a style let the user edit the content would be sufficient.

I've seen all the support requests and bug reports about this topic, some of them being submitted 5-8 years ago. So I decided to file a feature request for this.
