    PPT Control CLick Issue. (2002 SP3)

    Hello,

    I am having a very annoying problem with PPT. When I try to control 'click' multiple items, it either moves them with each click or it copies them. Also, sometimes when I just click on a item, it moves it. Does anyone have any advice to offer on this problem and how to resolve it?

    Thank you.

    This probably means that you move the mouse while clicking.
    If you have problems selecting objects by clicking on them, you might use the Select Multiple Objects tool - see <post:=389,047>post 389,047</post:>.

    Ok Try this then

    Locate the Powerpnt.exe file icon (probably in Program FilesOffice)
    Right Click > Properties
    In compatability tick disable desktop compositon

    See if that helps.
