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!

Thanks,
Linda

Figured it out. It has to do with our having different default themes. I wish I had figured it out earlier.
