I am not getting graphics (PNG, JPG) options when I 'paste special'

In PowerPoint 2007, when I copy a slide from the slide sorter and then 'paste special' into another slide highlighted in the thumbnail view to put it into that slide as an image (for a navigation aid to click on to jump to that slide for example), I only get 'slide' as an option. Occasionally (even with the same copied slide) I do get PNG, GIF, JPG, etc as options, just like the Microsoft help says I sould, but most of the time I don't - why not?

Once you have copied the slide from Slide Sorter View, double click on the slide you are pasting it to which opens it up in Normal View and then select Edit > Paste Special - You will now get the options.

You wont get all ths options of Paste Special simply from the Slide Sorter View - You need to make the slide you want to paste to the Active Slide by double clicking it first

Looks pretty good.  I was able to work it as you described.  There is still supposed to be an option where you just click one of the thumbnails and then go to paste special and it gives you the images options, but that only happens sporadically and inconsistently.

Thanks!
