The following is an image representing the source of a clipboard cut and paste operation. Actually the image shows up better in MsWord: here it is blurry
However it is much worse in PowerPoint when pasted either from (a) the clipboard or (b) first to Word, copy into clipboard again and then paste into Powerpoint: in fact it is truncated
So .. what is the deal with pasting to PowerPoint ? I am using PP for Mac 2011 v 14.1.
