Edit Master Slides?

Hi there,

New to OnlyOffice and brand new to this community! Been using OnlyOffice for a while and so far very impressed. Question - does OnlyOffice support ‘Master Slides’ as with Microsoft PowerPoint? I am creating a few presentations but for the life of me cannot figure out how to edit the master slides, or whether this is supported at all.




Hello @keithvassallo
ONLYOFFICE doesn’t support Slide Master at the moment. We know about it and we are already working on it. I have added your request to internal suggestion (internal number - 45381). I will update this post when we have something to share.

Thank you very much for taking note! Glad to hear you are working on it :slight_smile:


URGENT - Hi Team, any update on activating Master slide edit in OO?
This is becoming a deal-breaker for presentation focused work…

Note that ppt equivalent edits exist for all Office, GSuite, Apple slide systems:



APPLE MAC KEYNOTE (see linkedin learning)

This important function is very much expected!

We are still working on the mentioned feature. We will update this thread once we have something to share.

Hello @Alexandre, thank you for your answer. It is encouraging to know that you work on modifying the master slides in OO. It is the last thing that would allow me to get rid of MS Powerpoint once and for all.


Well, it works at least with standalone Desktop Client on Windows 11!
Masterslides are editable!
Thanks for your work.

Thank you so much for your work and for bringing this Feature (Master Slides). OnlyOffice is my GoTo Office in Linux and I really like design and usability!

But there are a few features, where I need an other officesuit and Master Slides was one of them. Thank you for continues updates to close these gaps.

One questions regarding missing features: I have the problem, that I need text-based animations (so an individual animation per bullet point) in presentations. And I think this doesnt work right now? Is this planed for the future? Also a referent mode for the presentation with notes, time, etc. These are the two points that hold me back to use OnlyOffice for presentations. For everything else Im really happy.
