I wanted to add an additional slide in an existing PowerPoint, i selected New Slide, which it created, but when i wanted to edit it, the blinking cursor would not appear.

Question: How can i edit my new slides again?


  • Windows 7(32-bit)
  • Libreoffice version:
  • Saved as Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP/2003(.ppt) (*.ppt)
  • This PowerPoint has also been opened, edited and saved by Microsoft Power Point(2010)
  • The same issue seems also to be existing when selecting new slide in Microsoft Power Point(2010)
  • Using a template from template manager called: Metropolis

Have you tried to change "slide layout" (Format>Slide Layout...)? Maybe it is on "blank slide"?
