    word export -> ppt and template; autofit bug? (winXp, Office XP)

    All,
    Two problems in WordXP, PowerpointXP.
    1: Create an outline in word and export to ppt. The 'blank.ppt' template with my customizations isn't selected!
    2: Text doesn't autofit to the size of the Title or Main text box (or any text box)!

    Anybody know a workaround to either of these?

    Thanks!

    I don't have XP, but when I recently Sent a Word 2000 outline to PPT it didn't conform itself to the master styles at all. I'm wondering whether it makes sense to export a generic-looking outline from PPT to Word first, to try to get all the styles in a PPT friendly format before creating the Word outline and sending it back. (I wonder, but I haven't tried it.)
