Error when using powerpoint template with quarto

I get the following error when trying to use a template with powerpoint in Quarto.

ERROR: Validation of YAML front matter failed.
ERROR: In file myfile.qmd
(line 5, columns 5--40) Field "pptx" has value reference_doc: mytemplate.potx, which must instead be 'default'

Example code:

title: "My title"
    reference_doc: mytemplate.potx

## Quarto

Quarto enables you to weave together content and executable code into a finished presentation. To learn more about Quarto presentations see <>.

Which version of quarto are you using ? quarto --version or quarto check

I can't reproduce this, so maybe it has been fixed in latest 1.3 version.

I have 1.2.335 and will work on updating.
