    Paste Special disturbs content on slide

    Hello,

    The screenshot shows Powerpoint XP's options when paste special-ing a table from Microsoft Excel.

    I usually choose "Device Independent Bitmap" due to the quality of image it gives me.

    Problem is that when it pastes it onto the slide, other graphic objects there jump from one place to another. Sometimes these previously present graphics lose any scaling I just gave them. And a "Click to add title" text box appears at the top of the slide.

    All I wanted to do was paste my new graphic, but all these things happen automatically. Is it possible to stop them doing this?

    TIA.

    Have you read about the Auto-Fit options with PowerPoint XP?

    What Wendell said. Go to Tools/Autocorrect and turn off all the auto layout for inserted objects option.
