My PowerPoint 2011 for Mac template has master pages with Page number and Footer text fields.

When adding normal presentation pages, these are missing from the page. They are just not there.

Here's what I tried to bring them back:

  • Going to Insert > Header and Footer and enabling the Footer and Page number options. The text from the Master is visible there. After I hit OK, the fields still don't appear. Returning to Insert > Header and Footer shows the options still disabled.

  • Using the option Layout > Reset Layout to Default Settings. Nothing happens.
