Background images in multiple slide masters may not display as expected in Quizmaker '09

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

If you have designed multiple slide masters in a single Quizmaker ’09 quiz with different images inserted into the background of each slide master, you may find that only the background image from the first slide master gets applied to all the slides in the quiz when you preview or publish, even if you have assigned different slide masters to each slide in the quiz.

This is a known issue.  You can correct it.  Here's how:

First, save each slide master as a theme:

  1. Open your quiz in Quizmaker '09, and then double-click one of the questions to open it for editing.
  2. Click the Slide View button on the toolbar.
  3. Select the View tab, and click Slide Master.
  4. Select one of the slide master thumbnails in the left navigation pane.
  5. Click the Themes drop-down arrow, and select Save Current Theme.
  6. Assign a recognizable name to your theme, and click the Save button.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 for each of the other slide masters in your quiz.
  8. Click the Close Master View button.
  9. Click the Save & Close button.

Then assign the appropriate theme to each of your question slides:

  1. Double-click one of your questions to open it for editing.
  2. Click the Slide View button on the toolbar.
  3. Go to the Design tab.
  4. Click the Themes drop-down arrow to reveal all your custom themes and built-in themes.
  5. Right-click the theme you want to apply to this question, and select Apply Only to This Question.
  6. Click the Save & Close button.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each question that you want to customize.
