SYMPTOMS

When you print a Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 presentation that contains multiple masters, all of the printed slides display the same master.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because PowerPoint 2000 recognizes only the first slide master in the master list when it prints the slides.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
