I am having issues wrapping text around graphic objects in PowerPoint 2007.  In the office help it says I have to put text boxes around the object to achieve this.  Is there an easier way?

Textboxes in PowerPoint do not offer wrapping properties like word
processors. To do this in PowerPoint, start a new document in Word. Insert
your graphic and type your text as you want it to appear in PowerPoint. Also
set your wrapping properties as you want it to appear. Highlight the
paragraph(s) and then copy it. In PowerPoint do a Paste Special (Edit menu)
as a Word Object.

FYI, PowerPoint viewer doesn't support OLE objects so you may have problems sharing the presentation and embedding a Word object will make the file much larger.  Your best bet is to go ahead and put the text boxes around the graphic.
