Animation, Password, Multiple Master features unavailable in PowerPoint 2002/2003


You use PowerPoint 2002 (XP) or 2003 but can't seem to make the new animation features, password protection or multiple master features work.


Probably these features are temporarily disabled. To re-enable them:


PowerPoint 2002 and 2003 allow you to disable features that aren't supported in earlier versions of PowerPoint.
This is handy if you need to create presentations that'll be shared with users of older versions of PowerPoint, Mac PowerPoint users and so on.

It's not so useful if it's accidentally turned on for some reason and you can't use all the neat new features in your copy of PowerPoint. Now you know how to fix it.
