    Disabling Copy/Paste (In PowerPoint 2000/2002)

    Does anyone know of a method for disabling the copy function when in PPT? Or any other office application?
    I've gotten as far as turning off the menu entries.

    Thanks

    In other Office applications with a persistent macro store (e.g., Normal.dot in Word), you can substitute a do-nothing macro like this:

    Sub EditCopy()
    'just do nothing
    End Sub

    Sub EditPaste()
    'just do nothing
    End Sub

    PowerPoint's macro storage is different; I don't believe there is an equivalent to Normal.dot. This might mean you have to create an add-in, or perhaps there is another solution.
