Hello everybody,

I am currently looking at excel/PowerPoint, where you have the following when you open a document:

In the cases above, I have simply opened a blank document. However, what annoys me is that if I use a template from any prior documents, it will say the names of the authors, dates, properties etc.

I was thus naturally wondering, if anybody knows of a function or trick that makes it so when you open the document, this "info" section is automatically eliminated/reset, I.E. "wiped clean" to create a new slate.

It would be amazing! If anybody knows how to do this, or have any tricks/tips, please let me know - I would be eternally grateful! :)

Thank you!

Best regards,
Jyggalag

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

UPDATE: I found out that the "Check for issues" Document inspector does exactly what i want!!!



Is there any way in which I can have this run and remove all whenever I save a PowerPoint presentation?
