Do not show slide content in master view

A master is used to organize the basic elements (i.g. placeholder, header and footer, slide number, etc.) of a slide to make these elements common across all slides. Therefore, the contents of the slide such as text and objects that you enter randomly are not displayed in master view.

To check the contents of the slides and the layout when printing, click File > Preview and then select an item you want under Print Target on the toolbox.
