PowerPoint 2003: Would like to "copy" slides from a lengthy Sales Presentation from one Slide Presentation Format to a differenct Slide Presentation Format without losing detailed slide formating.

I am very familiar with "Insert / Slide from files / Keep formating" to copy slides from one presentation to another. This does a nice job of copying slides and keeping formats the same
but the 'master slide format' is not consistent with the new Slide Presentation Format. This is my dilema. Dealing with a 120 p.g. presentation and I don't want to lose formating on many of these slides when copying over to the new Presentation format.

Thanks!
Chris

You have two options.

1. Copy the slide, paste it into the presentation and do not choose Keep Source Formatting. You will of course end up having to reformat a lot of stuff, as you've explained.

2. Copy the *contents* of the slide (make sure you're in the slide workspace (not in the slides thumbnail pane), use Ctrl+A to select all, then Ctrl+C to copy), then go to your target presentation, insert a new slide (maybe a Blank or Title Only layout will work best here), and then Ctrl+V to paste the objects onto the new slide. When the paste options button appears immediately after you paste, choose Keep Source Formatting to keep the formatting of the objects.
