    Automatic Scanned Image & Placeholder Resize (PowerPoint XP)

    In PP2000 if you insetred an image from the scanner it would resize it if you placed it over the plaeholder. In XP this doesn't seem to work. Any Ideas?

    Re: Automatic Scanned Image & Placeholder Resize (PowerPoint XP)

    I believe you're referring to the ability to drag an object (or text) onto a placeholder and have the placeholder "grab" said object or text. That "feature" was removed in PPT 2002/XP, as it was confusing for many users. They couldn't always understand why dragging something around on a slide resulted in the object becoming part of a placeholder.

    I think this was supposed to be doable in PPT 2002/XP by holding down the ALT button while dragging the object to the placeholder, but it doesn't seem to work.
