1.3.4 Placeholders Shapes
Placeholder shapes are specialized shapes that serve as containers for a variety of objects. Title and body placeholder shapes can be used to extract an outline text representation of the document. Header, footer, date, and slide-number placeholder shapes can be used to uniformly present meta-information on each slide. Various object placeholder shapes can be used to provide clues to insert specific types of shapes, such as tables or charts.
When contained within presentation slides or notes slides, a placeholder shape inherits its visual properties from a corresponding placeholder shape on a main master slide, title master slide, or notes master slide.
