Is there a way to change multiple masters at once in Keynote. Examples

  • Change the background color for ALL slides from grey to green.

  • Change all fonts from Copperplate to Garamond

  • Insert a company logo onto all slides simultaneously.

  • Change the default background to all text boxes to #6699EE

There is a similar question but the accepted answer explains how to do it for ONE master.

This question was asked once before, in November 2011. Has this situation changed?

I think it could be useful if you’d link to the question you are refering to. This also helps users viewing the other question find your question (and potential answers). Thanks! – myhd Mar 15 '13 at 10:19
Also, it might help if you tell us what application you're using (i.e. are you using PowerPoint or Keynote?) – Faiz Saleem Mar 15 '13 at 16:45

I don't think that it's possible. Each of the Keynote masters are pretty different items, with completely different fonts, objects, etc. It's a failing of the system.
