PowerPoint Macro-Enabled Design Template .potm A template that includes pre-approved macros that you can add to a template to be used in a presentation. The list of design templates seems to be «fixed» to what ships with PowerPoint 2003 (see 1 in the image below). I suspect that this change might be related to the color sort that they added at the last minute. Using PowerPoint templates for your presentations can be very convenient and efficient. This feature is very handy, especially if you want to enforce a standard template within an organization.
