It would be good to include a checkbox in the 'Slide Design' dialog that allows the selected master to be applied to all the slides, similar to how you have the option in the sidebar to apply a master page to all the slides.
Isn't it an idea to rework slide design dialog towards Loading only, since all the rest can be done via the panel in de side bar ?
Initially, the intent of this bug report was going to be to eliminate the 'slide design' dialog and simply link 'slide design' to the master pages sidebar. The reason i felt that it should be kept was that the sidebar doesnt have the checkbox features 'exchange background page' or 'delete unused backgrounds'.

Can these not be added to the Used in This Presentation sub-pane of the Master Page pane?

I havent used these features before so i wouldnt know how useful they are and how possible it is to include them in the sidebar. But i assume it maybe difficult to do those on a per slide basis.
