I try to add a page number in PowerPoint 2007, but it doesn't appear.

I go to Insert » Slide Number, tick the "Slide Number", and then apply to all. Nothing happens, and if I reopen the slide number option, it is still unticked.

Try Viewing your Master and then inserting the page number

  1. View > Slide Master
  2. Insert > Header & Footer > Slide Number (going through Header & Footer alone might be your solution)
  3. Check Slide number
  4. Apply to All
