I realize that the slide master dictates a certain style on any new slides that are added to the presentation. However, users are free to override the style dictated by the slide master. Once all of the presentation content has been finalized, is there a way to reapply the slide master across the presentation in order to obtain uniform formatting (e.g. consistent bullets and fonts) on all slides prior to finalizing the presentation?
