In the top right-hand corner of the first slide in a Powerpoint file I'm translating it says "estrictamente privado y confidencial", but I can't find anyway to modify the text. It doesn't seem to be in a text box or an image, and nothing I do to it seems to make any difference! It's the only thing left to translate in this 3,300-word file...

I'm sorry to say I don't know what version of PP it is; the Windows I'm running is 2003.

TIA

Hi Elizabeth,

Is it on the slide master? Go to View - Master - Slide Master, and see if you can edit it from there. (Then 'Close Master View' to get back to the normal view.)

Hope this helps,

Richard.
