Hellow Powerpoint Experts,

I am using Powerpoint 2007, usually in compatability mode (2003).

I have charts in Excel and want to paste the images to placeholders. (not as Excel objects)

I can paste the images, but they do not resize automatically to fit the placeholder.

I'm using shortcut ALT-E-S / windows metafile to paste the image to the placeholder (tried other options, same result).

Any tips?

Thanks

1.In Excel, copy the chart as you normally would. (For instance, select the chart and press Ctrl+C.)
2.In PowerPoint, display the slide where you want the chart to appear.
3.Display the Paste Special dialog box. In PowerPoint 2007 display the Home tab o the ribbon, click the down-arrow under the Paste tool, and choose Paste Special.

It's not clear what you need but i very much doubt that it's Picture Placeholders if you are pasting Chart images. They will crop off parts of the image which is probably not acceptable for charts.

If you select the placeholder and then paste special it should fit either the width or height to the same as the placeholder. Is this not what is happening? If it fitted both the chart would be distorted.
