    Hi @Rebecca Maxson

    Welcome to Q&A forum ~

    Could you please check the version number and update channel of your Microsoft 365 Apps via clicking File > Account > Product Information > About PowerPoint´╝č

    I suggest you go to Troubleshooting part of the article "Create professional slide layouts with Designer", and then select " I don't see the Designer button".
    According to the article, please make sure your subscription is not Office 365 Germany Germany.
    Besides, you have turned on Office connected experiences.
