Copy & Paste on Powerpoint 2003? Want PP 2000 way

  JerryJay 00:11 12 Mar 2004

I find Copy and Paste with Powerpoint 2003 and Powerpoint XP is strange comparing with Powerpoint 2000.

When I work on a slide which has some objects, a graph and a equation, I wan to make another copy of those two on the same slides. With Powerpoint 2000, I just Copy & Paste, but with XP & 2003, I cannot do this. I have to use Paste Special and chose correct object to paste. This waste me a lot of time because I need to do the same operation very often. Is there any setting I need to change to make Powerpoint 2003/XP work the same way as Powerpoint 2000.

By the way, what are main advantages of 2003 and XP over 2000. I am currently use 2000 and thinking of switching if enough advantages for this.

I use XP and copy & paste is straight forward. Go to tools, options, edit and make sure 'use smart cut and paste' is ticked.

I tried, still does not work. I messed up whole slide.
