I asked this question last week and now I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Anyways, I created a template for one of my programs as a Blank Master Slide that I will be using for every slide of the program. I used smart shapes as buttons and set up the rollover and down states as well. However when I exit the Master Slide view these buttons don't appear to be working. Is there any sort of trick to make master slide button work?

You probably are using CP2017 and forgot to install the patch released a while ago. Check the version number, recent version is 10.0.1.285.

BTW editing a blank master slide is changing a theme, not a template. Have a look at:

Moreove be careful with editing the Blank master slide which needs to remain blank for PPT import and for software sims.

So I just started to break this down, piece by piece and it works if I have no more than 3 buttons on the Master Slide. Previously I had 5 buttons on the Master. If I add buttons 4 and 5 to the slide outside of the Master Slide view it works. So I guess my question is are there restrictions to what you can add to the Master Slide or a number of buttons? But now I am having rollover issues from the Master Slide .

It was a bug in your release, fixed with the patch.
