Combine Masters
« on: October 02, 2012, 11:04:51 AM »
It would be nice if i have two different masters in a document that are almost identical (call them mstr_v1 and mstr_v2) both with shapes referencing them, to force all shapes to refer to one master, and allow for the deletion of the other master.

Currently macro's need to be written to delete all the shapes referencing mstr_v1 and replace them with mstr_v2.  Then any changes or connection points need to be made to that shape and reconnected which is just frustrating.

I think Paul Herber's SuperUtilities also has a replace shape.
