Modifying master?

Mar 14, 2014 at 8:30 PM
I need to take an existing pptx file and modify things like images and text. Specifically, I need to be able to modify things in the slide master. Is PHPPowerPoint designed for doing this? If so, where can I find examples of how to do it?

Unfortunately, that is not possible at the moment. Master slides are being copied "as is" by the PowerPoint2007 LayoutPack feature.
In order to modify the slide master it has to be

1) correctly imported into the PPT07 object model (not implemented)
2) modified on the object model level
3) exported/written to file by a newly created master slide exporter (not implemented).

I'm currently working on a basic importer but it does not cover master slide imports. However, as master slides are basically equal to "normal" slides, it would be possible to add this feature with minor effort.

So, short answer: no, it's not possible.

Best regards,
