It's true that you can't copy or add placeholders, but try Insert, New Slide
and scroll through the available layouts. One of them allows a four-up grid of
objects. Another allows a double-height text box next to two stacked objects.
You could add that, resize the text box to match the height of the other
objects, dupe it and move it.

Turning your guides on and ctrl+dragging extras into place will make
sizing/moving the bits a lot simpler.

If you have lots of these, set one slide up as a blank specimen slide and dupe
the slide as needed.

In my business, "Quad" slides are very popular. There are layouts that allow
up to four objects on a slide, but there is nothing that allows four text
boxes and/or four placeholders on a master slide. Apparently there is no way
to copy or add a placeholder in PowerPoint. Does anyone else face this type
of issue?

Brian,

you can add neither placeholders nor slide layouts. But you can add two
textboxes to a slide with two text placeholders, type one word of sample
text into them and save this as a sample slide with your template. Whenever
you need a "Quad" slide, you do not insert a new slide but copy this sample
slide.

Kind regards,
Ute Simon
