3.5.1 Master Slides Example

Office

This example explains how to locate the main master slide, the title master slide, and the notes master slide.

The main master slide and title master slide are found by means of the MasterPersistAtom records (section 2.4.14.2) contained within the MasterListWithTextContainer record (section 2.4.14.1). The child-record hierarchy of the MasterListWithTextContainer record A from the table titled "DocumentContainer child-record hierarchy" in section 3.4 is shown expanded in the following table.

persistIdRef: 0x00000002 specifies the value to look up in the persist object directory, shown in the last table in section 3.2, to find the persist object stream offset 0x00000CC5. This offset matches the offset for the MainMasterContainer (section 2.5.3) record B in the table titled "Top-level record sequence in the PowerPoint Document Stream from sample.ppt" in section 3.3. This MainMasterContainer record represents the main master slide as shown in figure titled "Main master slide" in section 3.1.
