PowerPoint 2007 Paste Options

PowerPoint text adopts the formatting of surrounding text when you move or copy it to a new location. PowerPoint’s Paste Options let you keep its original formatting. The Paste Options button appears only after you paste text. Click it to open a drop-down list with these options:

  • Keep Source Formatting: The text keeps its original formatting.

  • Use Destination Theme: The text adopts the formatting of surrounding text (the default option).

  • Keep Text Only: The text is stripped of all formatting.

Some people think that the Paste Options button is a bother. If you are one of those people, click the Office button and choose PowerPoint Options on the drop-down list. You see the PowerPoint Options dialog box. Select the Advanced category and unselect the Show Paste Options buttons check box.
