adding a placeholder for a subtitle on the slide master?

I have a presentation template that I am setting up. In the slide master: it

includes the default Slide Title Placeholder (Title Area for Auto Layouts)

and the Body Text Placeholder (Object Area for Autolayouts). I want to

include an additional placeholder for a Slide Sub-title that a user can click

into and add text when working in a slide. The subtitles will be different

from page to page.

Anyone know how to do this? The only workaround I have is to copy and paste

a textbox onto every slide for a sub-title. If I do this however, when I

insert a new slide this text box will not appear. Does someone has a better

solution?

Thanks!

    • Unfortunately the Master Slide does not have the ability to add additional

      placeholders... you are stuck with the title and body copy options.
