Exporting PowerPoint Objects to Other Programs
You can copy any object in your PowerPoint presentation to another program, either linked
or unlinked. For example, perhaps you created a chart using the PowerPoint charting tools
for one of your PowerPoint slides and now you want to use that chart in a Microsoft Word

To copy an object from PowerPoint, select it in PowerPoint and copy it to the
Clipboard (Ctrl+C). Then switch to the other program and paste (Ctrl+V).

program’s document, choose it in PowerPoint and copy it (Ctrl+C). Then, switch to
the other program and use Paste Special. (In programs that use a menu bar rather
than a Ribbon, the command is usually Edit
Paste Special.)
To embed or link an entire PowerPoint presentation in another program’s document,
use the Object command in the other program (probably on an Insert tab or menu),
and choose your PowerPoint fi le as the source.
You can also save individual slides as various types of graphics with the File

command, as you learned to do in Chapter 2, “Creating and Saving Presentation Files.”
