Using PowerPoint 2002 or later?

If so, try this:

Choose Tools, AutoCorrect Options
Click "AutoFormat As You Type"
Remove the checkmark next to "Automatic layout for inserted objects"
Click OK

Try pasting again.  My money's on "Alllllll better now"

1.Vista vs PowerPoint - copying and pasting

I have had a new laptop today which includes Vista and Microsoft Office 2003 
and I'm having trouble with PowerPoint. When I click on an image/text it 
automatically creates a copy or if I change the line spacing/font of text it 
also automatically creates a copy and leaves the old version underneath. I've 
turned off Smart Cut and Paste but it's still playing up. Does anyone have a

2.copy textbox from powerpoint 2003 and paste it to powerpoint 2007

I am facing problem in copy/paste functionality with powepoint 2007.
I have a input ppt with a textbox of font size 18. The slide master font 
size is 18 for input ppt. I have a output ppt having slide master font size 
as 36.
I copy textbox from input ppt and paste it to output ppt. The font size of 
textbox changes from 18 to 36.
This seems to be a bug with MS Powerpoint 2007 since there is no such 
problem with MS Powerpoint 2003.
Need help to solve this problem.

3.Distorted Excel chart fonts when copy/paste to Word or Powerpoint

Since a few weeks I'm having a problem with Excel charts. First of all, the 
y-axis title is cut-off after 6-7 characters on the display screen, although 
it prints correctly.
Second, when I copy and paste the chart into e.g. Word or Powerpoint the 
chart fonts appear 'distorted'. The workaround for this problem is to first 
print the chart to a PDF file and then copy and paste the PDF file, but this 
is cumbersome. Does anyone know what might be causing this erroneous behavior?
One theory (suspicion) is that the problems started after I used MS Chart 
(which I normally never use) to create a chart in Powerpoint. Another 
suspicion is that it might have to do with the 1900x1200 wide screen 
resolution that I'm using, although until a few weeks ago this has never 
given me any problems.
Thanks for your suggestions!
