    copy/paste text from PowerPoint

    Carrie Rogers Level 1

      I've been suffering with this for a while, and am hoping I'm missing a simple fix.

       

      I get a lot of text content to include in layouts via PowerPoint slides. When I try to copy/paste a table from PPT (selecting all the cells) to InD it doesn't paste anything. My workaround is to paste into Excel or Word and then I can sucessfully copy/paste into InDesign, but I'd rather skip that step if possible.

       

      Is there a clipboard setting, or something else that I'm missing? This workflow worked okay with Office 2003.

       

      Win 7 Enterprise with Office 2010, InDesign CS 5.5

       

      Thanks,

      Carrie
