  2. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the arrow below New Slide, and then click Reuse Slides.
  3. Click Open a PowerPoint File.
  4. Browse and select the file you want to import into the new template.
  5. At the bottom of the Reuse Slides pane.
  6. Right click on any of the slides in the Reuse Slides pane, select Insert All Slides.
  7. Review all slides for formatting issues as text and images might have shifted when incorporating this new size.
