Is it possible to set a default PowerPoint 2007 Paste option to source?
Posted on 2012-03-30
My boss uses PPT 2003, and I use PPT 2007. He often creates a PPT deck into which he's copy/pasted text or graphics and formatted them properly. When he sends them to me to edit, everything changes to my default theme colors when I open the files. He has to give me a printout so I know what the colors of the pasted text and graphics are supposed to be, and I then have to manually go through and change text and graphic colors, sometimes having to figure out the RGB by trial and error.
Another issue is when I paste a new graphic into a deck and send it back to him, all he sees is a blank square in one of my default colors, the size and shape of the graphic that's rendering fine on my screen. I finally figured out how to fix the blank graphic issue the last time he sent a deck for my review...sure wish I had written out how I did it!
Is there a way to set the PPT general program default Paste option to Source? This issue is severely damaging my productivity and giving me more gray hairs!
