PPTX: why is the master slide not checked in?

Hi there,

I just realized that the master slide of a PPTX (PowerPoint 2010) file was not checked into Across for translation, which means that I have to go back and translate the text on the master slide (in my case, it's the footer for all slides) outside of Across.

Why is that? Anyone have the same 'problem'?

I checked the system settings for the PPTX format, but apart from Object and Image I couldn't change or add any elements. I tried a PPT file again (older PowerPoint version) and the texts on the master slides were checked in for translation.

Since I am an online user in an Across server environment and can check out the translated files myself, I can edit them in PowerPoint afterward. But what about our offline translators who send back the CRU files once they have finished their translations? Any text written on the master slides will still be in the source language...

Does anyone have any idea why the master slide texts don't show up for translation? Any help is appreciated.

Regards from Germany
